One of my favourite baccatum specimen. Very fast growing - even faster than some annuums. Brought from Bolivia, this chile is tasty fresh or dried. Fruits are cylindrical at stem end and taper to a point. Turns from green to yellow when ripe. Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last spring frost. Transplant when compost. Needs warm conditions day and night to germinate and fruit well. Pick at peak of color.
