Pepper Hot, Trepadeira Werner

A wild Brazilian pepper that looks like a cherry and tastes like a berry… but hot! This very fruit- forward chili pepper has upper mid-level heat and sweet balance, making it a rollercoaster for the tastebuds! The bushy 3 to 5 foot plants are bespeckled with oodles of these 1 inch, lipstick red pods. You will find the form highly ornamental and the flavor top notch. Excellent fresh or cooked and especially nice when pickled or made into hot sauce.
