Details

This pepper from Peru produces heavy yields of 1” x ¾” pods. They resemble a small red drop with a moderate heat and medium thick walls. They have a very tasty fruity flavor that leans into sweet. The burn comes on kind of slowly and catches up with you. Pods ripen from green to orange to bright red.
