Madagascar-(Capsicum chinense)-The Madagascar pepper is the only known native habanero type from that country. It probably came over to Madagascar during the time of slave and spice trading hundreds of years ago. We have changed the name to Madagascar because its name is too long for a label or a plant tag! Its true name is Tsilanidimilahy which translates into hot enough for 5 people. The Madagascar chiles average about an inch in width and 2 inches long. They have some slight ribbing or folds in the pepper flesh. The Tsilanidimilahy chile ripens from green to red. The heat level is very hot habanero or above with fruity flavor tones. The Madagascar chile plants grow 2 to 3 feet tall.
