Extremely rare wild chili pepper species which is very unique in many ways.
This has been a mystery for many Capsicum botanists and it has been classified both as C. praetermissum and C. eximium.
It’s clearly not either from the ones mentioned above but rather a species of it’s own. These pods are quite pungent with unique taste which is actually quite nice as a powder! One plant can bear hundreds and hundreds, even few thousands of pods in a good light. It tolerates cold very well. It grows best outdoors, even here in Finland.
Sometimes the plant can grow many flowers in one pedicel which is unusual for Capsicums. The flowers are very pretty and can vary depending on the light conditions!
Challenge: 2 (can be a bit slow to germinate.)
