Originally from Mexico, South America where they are used in the various local dishes that need the flavour of chilli (and a nice yellow/orange) color but not the heat of a hot dish. You can use this chilli fresh ofcourse but also dried or grinded. Also grown a lot in Asia where they use it in the stir-fries and Asian cooking.
The heat level of this chilli is not hot at all.
The chilli pods go from green to Yellow/Orange over time. When fully grown the Siam Chilli can grow up to 45 – 60 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.
