Super Nova-(Capsicum annuum)- )- This is one of four Space Chiles we are selling. The Space Chiles are from China. China sent seeds of many plant types into space and claim that cosmic radiation increased everything from germination and growing rates. Also increased productivity as well. The Super Nova are more like a traditional Asian chile. They are about 3/8 of an inch thick and 6 to 8 inches long much like a large cayenne. The flavor is sweet with an upfront burn. They ripen from green to red and can be eaten either way. The Super Nova space chile is great for stir fry or chile sauces. It can also be dried and used as a seasoning powder. The Super Nova chile plants grow just over 3 feet tall. They need to be staked to support the weight of the chiles.
