Details

This is an interestingly shaped hot pepper from master Italian grower Biagi Massimo. The orange variant has a balloon like shape at the bottom of the pepper making it look like someone pumped air into it. If that is not peculiar enough sometimes a little tail will peek out from between those balloons. Flavor is fruity, and the heat reaches average habanero heat level. Plants can be quite productive and grow 3’-4’. Also known as Erotico Orange. Non-Isolated. 

SHU: 100,000 - 300,000
