Extremely prolific and early heirloom, producing 4” long fruits for months!
A farm favorite for its prolific production of sweet, 4” long fruits that ripen from pale yellow to orange to red. Pick early and often and they’ll just keep producing all season. Great for fresh eating, frying, roasting, and stuffing. Heirloom brought back to the Western hemisphere by touring acrobat Jan Antohi. OP.
Seeds grown by Swift River Farm in Salmon, Idaho and Affinity Farm in Moscow, Idaho.
Indigenous people in modern day Mexico domesticated chiles from their wild crop ancestor the Chiltepin thousands of years ago, adapting it into so many unique and delicious varieties. When the European colonizers came, they took chiles back to Europe, referring to them as peppers because of their spicy flavor, which reminded them of peppercorns. Now chiles are beloved and cultivated by cultures all over the world, and despite the devastating legacy of colonization, the descendants of their original seed stewards continue to persist and cultivate them today.
Directions: Start seeds indoors 8 weeks before last frost. Use bottom heat to aid germination and be patient. Transplant after frost.
