Capsicum chinense "PI 215734"

PI 215734 chilli plant

PI 215734

ripe chillies


From the shape of the chillies, this might be taken for a baccatum cultivar, but the flower and other characteristics point to chinense. Originating from Peru, it is possible that this is a natural interspecific hybrid.

As expected with a landrace, the plants are not totally uniform with some cropping more heavily than others.



A very tasty chilli with thick juicy flesh, making it an ideal variety for making salsas.
