Details

From the Christopher Phillips Rare Seed Collection Release #7 on September 3, 2015. This is another very, very rare variety from Goias, Brazil not well known. The Portugese name translates to 'Bag Old'. It was sent to Christopher by a very good friend. This Capsicum chinese produces large habanero-like yellow pods that have an unusual flavor profile. One friend gave them a 'sour' distinction, which is not common for this species. Plants produce loads of these 2-3" long pods. Non-Isolated.
