Chiltepin Chilli

The Chiltepin, also called chile tepin, is originaly from Mexico, Arizona, Texas, and New Mexico. It is sometimes called the "mother of all peppers," because it is thought to be the oldest form in the Capsicum annuum species.

Tepin peppers, nicknamed “bird’s eye” peppers, rank high in heat level. This chile pepper is round or slightly oval and about 3/8 inch in width. "Tepin” comes from the Nahuatl Mexican word meaning “flea” because of its smallness. 

Tepins can be hot, measuring between 100,000 and 250,000 Scoville Units. In Mexico, the heat of the Chiltepine is called arrebatado ("rapid” or “violent”), which implies that although the heat is intense, it diminishes quickly.

Beautiful for stir fries, Italian, Mexican food...

The chilli pods go red as the plant reach its maturity.

This plant will give you a lot of fruits during the chilli season which lasts approximate 4 to 6 months.

 

Belongs to the Genus and species of Capsicum Annuum
