This beautiful and very unique hot pepper from South America can easily make a grown
man cry. So sharp is its bite! This beasty chili is excellent when dried and
ground to flakes or powder. The plant itself looks amazing with its silvery,
strongly pubescent leaves and striking, black pods which finally ripen to
bright red. One of the favorites for many! A sturdy, vigorous plant, also
suitable for pots. Very difficult to germinate.
