Zimbabwe Bird

C. frutescens



In stock

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!
