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 cons? heat takes taste away.

Review:

Thet biquinho I knew was sweet and had great taste. This one from BC had very strong heat and the taste of the true biquinho never really materialized.

What are the pros? Dainty decorative. Dries well.

What are the cons? Heat varies widely

Review:

These are lovely, little pepper plants that will look good in a flower garden as well. Very decorative AND productive. Grows slowly-- then explodes with ripening peppers all at once here in late August in Zone 5a. These red peppers dry like a dream because they're so tiny. Easy to pick the entire plant before frost, cut the roots off, and hang to dry. These peppers (dried) are extremely convenient in the kitchen. I store in a mason jar next to the stove. One pepper is perfect to spice up eggs on a plate or crumble over a single meal. My only complaint is the vast difference in heat between plants. You just don't know how hot each pepper will be until you taste it. My harvest varied from extra mild to hot. Other than that, the peppers will have their place in my garden in the future.

Fruity and spicy
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Delicious, sweet, vigorous

What are the cons? Moderate Germination Rate

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.

What are the pros? Great flavor

What are the cons? bad for containers

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.
