Also called Chile Manzano in Chile, Ecuador and Bolivia; we got this particular cultivar from one Mayan village in the highlands of Central Guatemala. There it is grown as a perennial plant used as a fence around the gardens. The beautiful pods are sold by the piece in the local markets. It is recommended to grow in container and protected environment in our latitudes and in a rather shaded spot. The large shouldered pods come in two colors on different plants: red or yellow. We offer the seeds as a mix of both colors as it is traditionally done in Guatemala. Flesh is thick, sweet and very flavorful, but becoming quite hot reaching the seed cavity. The seeds are black and require about one month to germinate.

What are the pros? Beautiful Plant

What are the cons? Where's the flowers?

Review:

I planted a couple of these indoors, lost some as to be expected, and now have a beautiful plant growing along my fence line. Maybe the N is too strong in my soil around there, I don't know. I've grown some rocoto peppers before, but never had such a long time till flowering. We'll see.

What are the pros? Perennial, tree-like

What are the cons? A bit thirsty

Review:

I love this chile for its flavor, but even more so, for its hardiness. My tiny plant has turned into a four-foot tree in the Bay Area that blooms lovely purple flowers and produces prolific yield of yellowish-orange fruit.
