Malawi Piquante Peppers
Also called Malawi Piquante. This is not the popular Piquante pepper from South Africa, which is a trademarked pepper. This variety I got from a friend in the U.K who obtained them from a friend who was working in the Country of Malawi.
These chiles are very sweet with a little kick of heat. They can get to almost 1 inch in diameter and resemble a small cherry tomato. The plants grow very fast and can get over 5 feet tall and are very productive.
Like many Capsicum baccatum varieties it takes a long season for fruit to ripen red. This pepper can be used many ways in sauces or cooking but is great when de-seeded and pickled.
”At Refining Fire Chiles we isolate our seed production plants to avoid cross-pollination with other chile species. If you want to grow your own chiles, you can purchase seeds right here, or full plants (April-July) and have fresh chiles by September.Refining Fire ChilesJim (Habanero) Duffy
