Recent research considers these wild and semi-wild peppers as the oldest known chili 
pepper species in the world. In a way: “the mother of chili”!  As a plants they are very 
different from anything else when it comes to chili. The plants itself isn’t 
the beauty-queen of capsicums. It’s typically a mess of long, thin stems 
sprawling everywhere. Fortunately, it’s not very big, either – and one can always 
use scissors. It produces masses of tiny,  very (!) lovely snow-white flowers and (later) oval, spicy (but not very hot) 
orange-red berries. These berries are actually very useful in all sorts of 
cooking, both fresh and dried. As strange as it may seem, these plants also 
make some very attractive bonsai plants! Also one of the easiest wild peppers 
to germinate. This should be a part of any capsicum enthusiast’s collection!

Chawa

Chawa

C. annuum

This special variety comes from Pakistan from the village of Chawa. It grows wild around the village and it's being used as powerful seasoning there. 

The plant itself is very large if you let it grow as big as it gets. The pods are very small but pack a lot of heat which works very well for seasoning stews or in any other food you can think of. Very convenient to use as a powder too.

Perfect to grow as a bonchi too after you show the plant the correct way to grow by using scissors. :)

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.

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!
