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. Weavers work.

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!

What are the cons? heat takes taste away.

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.

Lovely Perfect for Drying
Easy to Grow 4.0
EarlyMaturity 2.5
 

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!
