Rocoto variety with quite small pods. Very hot and tasty. Great for canning. The plant is extremely beautiful when it's full of pretty, purple flowers. Also very prolific plant. Grows very nicely even in smaller pot. This can also be referred as "indoor rocoto". From Bolivia. Challenge: 2
Juicy, quite prolific and semi-compact rocoto plant. Heat level is just above average. Needs quite long season. Challenging plant. Not recommended for beginners unless you're up to a challenges. The taste when fully mature is absolutely fantastic.
A rocoto variety with a LOT of heat. I was very surprised when I tasted this the first time. The aroma is great. Very good in all forms, fresh, powdered and smoked powder. Gives great yield but needs a longer season than varieties among other chile pepper species. Ideal variety for rocoto lovers who like to have it hot! Tolerates cold weather very well.
A HUGE rocoto variety with a medium heat level. Can reach the size of a bell pepper. These pods can easily weight 100-200+ grams. Despite the large size of the pods, the plants can bear a lot of yield. Highly recommended for rocoto lovers.
Rocoto variety which is super prolific. Grows very well outside even in cold climates. Loves colder nights and warm, sunny days. Has quite a lot heat which is still quite pleasant with cooking, like Rocotos usually are. The taste is very good and the pods are very juicy. Start early!
A pretty, orange rocoto variety from Guatemala that bears a lot of great tasting juicy pods. Makes a great smoked powder. Recommended for outdoor growing as rocotos tend to like colder nights, the days can however still be very warm. Use a large container for decent crops.
Challenge: 2 (for outdoor growing, use large containers)
A must-grow-rocoto from Ecuador.
One of the best rocotos I’ve grown. I named this variety Turbo Pube over a decade ago when I grew it and got insane yields per plant.
Nice taste and unique elongated egg shaped pods.
Challenge: 2 (Rocotos need a longer season but they can tolerate cold)
