Capsicum chinense from the Trinidad region, Caribbean. 'of type' discovered and developed by David Cappiello.
Tulip-shaped hanging fruits with variable shape, wrinkled skin that reminds of brains.
Ripes from green to red.
Exceptionally strong heat, probably due to the high percentage of placenta tissue.
"Nuclear" heat! (800,000 to 1,200,000 SHU)
Large plants (1m - 3,3ft) when grown in full soil. Can also be grown very well in pots but of course they will remain smaller. (60cm - 2ft)
Abundant production but quite late.
Like all peppers, the germination is delicate and it can take up to 40 days!
