DESCRIPTION

Rating 1,000 on the Scoville heat scale, this petite pepper packs a tiny bit of punch and is not overwhelming! Native to Brazil, the Biquinho red pepper is ordinarily pickled, but its smokey and sweet flavour profile is delicious in stir-fries, stews, and salads or baked into bread or scones.

PLANT CARE

  • Shake plants once flowers appear to pollinate.
  • You can start harvesting peppers when the peppers have turned red after approximately 50-60 days.
  • Pick the peppers often, as the more you harvest, the more the plant will produce.
  • Always cut, never pull the fruit from the plant.
  • Peppers are annual plants, but when kept indoors, they will keep growing fruit longer into the season.
  • Once the first leaves appear, pick out the largest plant and discard smaller plants by picking them with your fingers or by cutting them at the base.
