An exciting new Capsicum chinense cultivar from Peru. The elongated, slightly wrinkled chillies have a rich flavour and a fairly mild to medium pungency. The chillies dry well and make an excellent chilli powder, but can equally well be used fresh.
The upright growing plants are particularly handsome with dark green chillies maturing to rich chestnut brown and are ideal for growing in containers on the patio where they remain compact and crop early.
Grown in the open ground the plants are much larger and very productive, but the chillies ripen fairly late in the season.
