Pepper, Puta Madre (Capsicum chacoense), Packet of 10 Seeds, Organic

$3.95

Family:  Nightshade (Solanacea)
~30,000 Scoville Heat Units
Perennial in the tropics, otherwise grown as an annual–90 days from planting to field to maturity, and these do make peppers ongoing until frost.
(Tova, Covincho) Wild-type pepper native to Chile.  Compact plants, rounded in form, flowering white to 1 to 2 feet, sometimes travelling at ground level as a kind of groundcover, studded with the purple fruits that turn red at maturity.  These are similar to tabasco in form, detach easily from the plant at full ripeness, are quite tasty and very hot.  Standard pepper culture–get an early start.  We found these to be highly tolerant of cold soils in the spring and by the month of August we had plenty of fruits.  Easy to pick, thin-skinned, fast to dry, this pepper is a good choice.  Space plants 1 to 2 feet apart.

10 seeds per packet, certified organically grown

    Is it possible to winter over in pots indoors? I’ve had success with a Bhut Jolokia chilli for 3 years doing the same.

      yes, and they would be a good choice for that as they don’t get topheavy, staying rounded to the pot. r
