Cabai Burung Ungu

Cabai Burung Ungu

C. frutescens

One of the most unique chile peppers I've ever seen! The looks of this plant is very beautiful! From Malaysia.

The name means "Purple Bird Pepper".
The pods mature from the tiny shiny deep purple to orange-purple to through
purplish crimson red to bright red. 
The taste is typical to C. frutescens species, very suitable to use as flakes or powder or whole pods in a hot soup for example.
In colder climates this one should be grown indoors or in a greenhouse. Or if you can extend the growth by taking the plant indoors later autumn, you can grow it outdoors too.

Dogo Nyoni

Dogo Nyoni

C. frutescens

Some frutescens peppers were taken from Americas to Africa long ago, finding there a 
new character due to different climate and farming. Many of these peppers are 
called “Piri Piri” there. Dogo Nyoni is an excellent example of this kind of 
hot pepper. It tastes quite a lot like famous Tabasco pepper without being 
exactly similar to it – and believe us, this one is hot! Grows nicely in pots 
and makes a great bonsai, too!

C. frutescens

Here’s a fine example of a very rare wild frutescens pepper. These peppers are closely 
related to wild annuum “Tepin” peppers. So closely, actually, that the 
researchers debate which one developed first and where in South America. The 
origin of this variety is unknown, but it is believed that wild frutescens 
peppers originally grew in northern parts of South America. The tiny berry is 
not as hot as in some other wild capsicums, but its complex flavor makes it 
very good for drying and using as powder.

Challenge: 2 (sometimes wild peppers can be difficult to germinate)

Zimbabwe Bird

Zimbabwe Bird

C. frutescens


Some peppers taken by Europeans from South
America to Africa have escaped the farms and home gardens, turning again kind
of wild. This variety used to be something very close to the Tabasco pepper a
long time ago. Now, when African climate and soil have affected it for many
years in the wilderness, this pepper has developed a character of its own. For
example, it is definitely hotter than South American frutescens peppers tend to
be. A very good, interesting alternative to hot red chili in many dishes, and as
frutescens plants do, easy to grow as long as you can give it enough warmth and
light. Very good for bonsai growing!
