Capsicum annuum, heirloom from Mexico.
A very nice edible ornamental pepper variety.
Small (1.5 to 2.5 cm) round to conically shaped peppers that ripen from purple with a blue tinge to red.
Spicy in unripe form, 40 000 - 50 000 SHU. As they mature, they become a little less spicy.
Developed for its beauty and not for its taste. Edible, juicy flesh with even some sweetness.
Very high yields of compact shrubby plants that grow to about 40 to 50 cm. Decorative dark colored foliage.
Extremely suitable as a border or for growing in pots.
