Pepper (Hot) ‘Biquinho Red’ Brazilian

Pepper (Hot) ‘Biquinho Red’ Grafted Mighty Veggie

Description

Grafting is a traditional technique that dramatically improves vigor and yield. Read more on our grafting page.

Pronounced bee-KEE-nyo, the name of this landrace from Brazil means “little beak,” and it will add a kiss of flavor to any dish you cook with it. The bright red 1 inch pods taper to a point like an inverted teardrop. The pepper has the distinctive smoky flavor like other members of this species, but also a rich fruitiness that is enhanced by sugar or sweet-and-sour marinades. It also makes the perfect garnish for barbecues and pickles. The 2 1/2 foot bushes should be spaced 18 inches apart. Also known as “chupetinho.” Text courtesy of Baker Creek.

Care: Plant 18-24″ apart in rows 24-30″ apart in full sun. Keep soil uniformly moist (but not waterlogged) for best production.
