Here’s another great classic – and an essential
part of Peruvian cuisine! Baccatum peppers traditionally only grow in South
America, but they are actually the easiest and most successful plants for home
growers and beginners in chili hobby.
Lemon Drop represents hot, non-sweet,
slightly lemon-flavored types of baccatum peppers (as opposed to sweet, low-heat or
only moderately hot “Aji” –type baccatum peppers). The plant is relatively
compact and produces lots of bright yellow fruit even in non-ideal home conditions.
Grows well in pots. Lemon Drop is especially great for fish dishes! Also a very
good, different tasting alternative to Cayenne and other Asian-type red hot
A compact. Super prolific variety which produces quite hot, aromatic pods with a pleasant taste.
Ideal for beginners as it’s a great producer in almost any conditions. These beautiful pods ripen from light green to dark yellow/orange.
A permanent favorite amongst chile pepper growers. As the name
says, this compact and very well yielding plant produces pods that go through
almost every possible color. They are rather hot. When dried and
ground, produce extremely usable flakes or chili powder with unique flavor and
tender heat suitable for dishes where you may not need the sharper flavor of
“red peppers” or the characteristic “chinense pepper flavor”. This can add a
totally new dimension to your cooking. Also, as baccatum peppers go, Omnicolor
needs very little maintenance and does just well even indoors. Highly recommended for both, beginners and long-time chili pepper growers who have missed this great variety so far.

This variety is still under developement so it’s not fully stable yet, but you have a possibility to make it even better!

Extraordinary chili pepper plant from Brazil: the center
of things weird and wonderful in chili. The wonderment begins with the plant
itself. Huge leaves up to 30 cm long. It also grows very fast and it can grow VERY tall, 3-4 m
height isn’t uncommon at all! The fruit is not less spectacular: it is non-pungent
with sweet, very strong and pleasant apple flavor in the edges, but the center
of the pod is something entirely different: it’s HOT. One of the most
delicious, most amazing peppers there is.
Tall size is not a problem as you can keep it short simpley with scissors if you like.
A rarem orange version of a starfish-shaped chili pepper plant from Brazil.
This orange version has even more sweetness than the yellow version.
As with the red and yellow version, the edges of this chili pepper have very sweet, apple-like aroma and the middle section packs some heat.
Tends to grow a little taller than the yellow version. Very prolific and easy to grow plant.
A great baccatum bred from an accidental cross I grew years ago. My dear chilihead friend Chris Fowler grew many different phenotypes during a few years and this one is one of those. These large pods are very tasty as you would expect from a baccatum like this. The actual cross is most likely between Jamy and Kalaidoskop chili peppers. The plant is super prolific and quite large in size, still not too big plant for a C. baccatum. Great for stuffing!
Very unusual cross between Tepin and Lemon Drop.
Surprisingly the end result is very sweet and good tasting medium-hot/hot chili pepper. The plant is extremely prolific. The powder made from this variety is very good!
These seeds should produce fith generation plants so it’s not fully stable yet but quite close.

ripening to bright red) and unusul baccatum pepper that has an unusual, very delicious berry-like aroma and sweetness.. Highly
recommended for home growing! Gives extremely high yields! Easy to grow in pots. The ripe pods look like cherries. Mild-Medium heat level. Ideal for beginners. If you haven't tried Capsicum baccatum chili peppers just yet, this is a great choice to start with! The name of this variety means "Werner's Creeper" (Werner's Vine).
Medium hot, great tasting miracle plant which gives great yields.
Especially good as a powders. Works very well also as a fresh slices on bread, salads, and other dishes. Easy to grow except a little late producer but definitely worth the wait.
Ideal for people who are not just after the heat, but the actual taste too.
