Biquinho Hot Pepper

Pronounced bee-KEE-nyo, the name of this landrace from Brazil means “little beak,” and it will add a kiss of flavor to any dish you cook with it. The bright red 1 inch pods taper to a point like an inverted teardrop. The pepper has the distinctive smoky flavor like other members of this species, but also a rich fruitiness that is enhanced by sugar or sweet-and-sour marinades. It also makes the perfect garnish for barbecues and pickles. The 2 1/2 foot bushes should be spaced 18 inches apart. Also locally known as "chupetinho." Part of the each sale helps support Dr. Weaver's work.

What are the pros? nice heat, excellent pickled

What are the cons? none

Review:

this is the third year I've grown these and they've done well every year. My plants are around 2 feet tall and loaded with peppers. They're perfect pickled, nice heat level (compare to jalapeno, maybe), and so pretty! I keep a pot or two of them in the greenhouse over the winter to put outside in the spring for an early start. By August the new seedlings have caught up.

What are the pros? Prolific, unique

What are the cons? Hotter than anticipated

Review:

These germinated easily and early under the indoor light in late feb. Transplanted in the garden, they took a bit of time to get going after a strange and very rainy early summer. By late July, they were covered in immature fruit, with a few finally-deep red offerings. They are quite stout and crunchy. I expected them to be a bit sweeter, but rather found them to be quite hot...smokey and pungent with some fruitiness, sort of like an odd mix between jalapenos and a fruity Thai chili. I have since found them excellent in a garden tomato sauce and look forward to how they taste after pickling. Will grow again.

Biquinho chilies
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? Looks great in the garden.

What are the cons? It should be sweet, never hot.

Review:

I've got to know this chili when visiting Brazil a few years ago. They are sought for their taste instead of their spiciness. These chilies are invariably sweet, that's to say, they're always sweet, never spicy. It's precisely why it's so loved by Brazilians, especially those from the southern part of the country where they usually are not fond of spicy food, unlike most Latin Americans. These little chilies are extensively used in sauces, pickles and as a garnish because of its sweetness and fruity taste. So, if you want to have a true biquinho chili in your garden, forget the heat.

What are the pros? potential of delicious peps

What are the cons? stubborn little seedlings

Review:

I'm not sure what happened with my bequinho peppers! I planted seeds in a greenhouse in March, and planted them out maybe a month after that. In retrospect, perhaps I planted them out too early/too young. The seeds are still green and alive in my raised bed amongst 5 other peppers that are starting to produce, but they seem to be permanently stunted. I'm wondering if perhaps the cooler weather (not freezing but it may have been 40-60? some nights in late spring) they were planted out in caused this. Will certainly be trying again as I would love to pickle some of these!
