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. Weavers work.

What are the pros? Delicious, sweet, vigorous

Review:

This was one of seven types of hot peppers I grew this year, and I love them. The flesh is bright and fruity, with an almost orange/melon aroma. The ribs and seeds are quite spicy, somewhere around a serrano in terms of intensity, with a lingering but mild burn. The flavor is comparable to a habanaro, but that really doesn't do it justice; the flavor is sweet and unique and should be experienced. The plant itself had a troublesome early life, but once in soil amended with sand and mushroom compost, the plants took off. It is extremely productive and I cannot wait to try a hot sauce with it!

What are the pros? Healthy plants, interesting.

What are the cons? Much hotter than expected

Review:

Seeds germinated incredibly well indoors with lighting, approximately 75?f. As with peppers they remained small for some time. Small plants transplanted well. I did experience sunburn with these, which was not an issue with my annuum varieties(so take it easy when acclimating). Once the plants were in the ground they grew vigorously. Potted plants are doing well but with slower maturity. I purchased these seeds with recommendation from two Brazilian colleagues. They explained to me these are a snack pepper in Brazil and have little heat. Some of my peppers are reflective of this, but many are much hotter. I would compare these to a serrano. I would recommend this variety but would inform others of the heat.

Review:

These peppers are among my favorites I've grown in flavor. As far as growing them, they don't seem to like pots. The plant in the beds grew well, where the the plants in pots were sorta stunted and haven't given much fruit. Flavor wise, they are fantastic, fruity and hot: they remind you of why you grow peppers in the first place. Especially on the taste of that tip end, where you understand that even the hottest chiles can be sweet. This is a pretty wild pepper, so you may end up with different results.

Review:

It's my first time growing this pepper and I wasn't expecting it to be quite this hot. I just picked a pepper that had turned orange, sliced it in two and put a sliver of it into my mouth. Yikes! Got that immediate burning sensation of a super hot pepper. I didn't even bite into it. Definitely didn't get a "smoky" flavor. However, I'm not going to give up yet. I'll try roasting some and using them in some recipes. The plant is attractive and yields quite a few peppers, so that's a plus. I grow quite a few peppers in a greenhouse because Salem usually doesn't have a very hot growing season, and I like both sweet and hot peppers. So the jury is still out on this pepper for flavor and heat, but I have enjoyed growing it. It's a healthy plant, and I haven't had any major pest problems.

Review:

I have not had much luck with peppers due to the rampaging fire ants in my yard, however this pepper and the Hungarian Black Pepper (better than a jalapeno) have grown beautifully in a wine barrel with very little pest interference. I sowed seeds in December and planted out in Feb-March and they didn't do much until the heat set in. I only planted one and it's over 3 feet tall and it is currently covered in peppers (it's mid-August). I wasn't expecting this heat level but I am glad to have it; the peppers are very crunchy and have a serrano level of heat. Next year I will plant more so that I can pickle or ferment them.
