These spectacularly shaped red peppers are very sweet and crisp, with just a little spice near the seeds (spiciness varies a bit between plants, but all are mild as far as hot peppers go). 4-5 foot plants need most of the growing season here in Virginia. Seedstock came from Tom Frothingham, who had them at a seed swap at the 2013 SSAWG conference in Little Rock. 120 seeds/gram. 115 days. Grown by Living Energy Farm.

Ask a Question About Brazilian Orchid Pepper - Certified Organic
Answer this question
I need information on this pepper and I can't find any. I need to know if it is a natural insecticide and more details about that. I need to know historical or mythical uses and values. I just need a lot of help. Everything is popping up about Brazilian pepper trees which are different. HELP!
I am the same person that posted this. Please Help now!
I believe that this pepper was named 'Brazilian Orchid' by Tom Frothingham of Arkansas. I forget how he came across them, but they didn't come with a name so he made one up. You could do a search for "Capsicum baccatum Brazil" and see more information about similar peppers. This pepper is minimally spicy. I don't know anything about using it as a natural insecticide.
