A farmer gave one of these peppers years ago. They are sweet with a thin cellular-walled skin. He had been selecting it for over 15 years. Since then we’ve grown it out year after year. It is extremely hardy in the wet tropics, needing no irrigation once established. It can reach about 4-5 feet high and 4-5 feet wide. We’ve witnessed the plant living up to 3 years on their own without intervention, fertilization etc. But, if you do fertilize you will be rewarded with larger peppers that can get up to about 2 to 2.5 inches wide. We’ve noticed a resistance to pests, fruit flies, bacterial wilt and drought tolerance.
