We think this variety comes originally from the area of Mexico, Texas and Louisiana. The name of this chilli says it all! When fully grown and ripened the chilli pod of this chilli looks like a miniature penis! It doesn’t only look good but also taste nice ;=)) Scuse the pun…
The bright red colour and unique euh shape of this chilli pod will be a good conversation starter when you have your next BBQ with your family and friends! They look really nice in your garden and will give you lots of pleasure when in season ;=))…
You can use this chilli fresh offcourse but also dried or grinded. The heat level of this chilli is not too hot. Will do well in salads, great in a sandwich wrap or any Mexican, Italian style cooking which needs some nice red colour for the looks and not too much heat.
The chilli pods go from green to red over time. When fully grown the Peter Pepper Penis Chilli can grow up to 50 – 70 cm high and you should be able to get a lot of fresh fruit during the chilli season which lasts approximate 4 to 6 months.
