Days to Maturity: 75-90


Peri Peri-(Capsicum frutescens)-My second most favorite bird pepper type from the South region of the continent of Africa. Pili Pili means "pepper pepper" in Swahili. It is also called piri piri, peri peri and the British years ago called it the African Devil pepper because of it's heat. It grows in the wild but now is cultivated for spice production. Popular in African cooking and also used in a marinade for roasting chickens or if you don't have time for a marinade then just sprinkle some pili pili pepper flakes on your meat before serving. The Pili Pili peppers grow upright and mature to a an orange or red color. They are about .125 in diameter and .75 inches long. Peri Peri or Pili Pili can produce chile plants over 4 feet tall.

    I planted 3 piri piri plants . They are now 2 feet, 1 foot and the other one 1 and the half. They are in 10 inch pots. But I have no flowers. They are outside where they have direct sunlight in the morning. Why don’t I have flowers?
