Description:

Malawi Piquante-(Capsicum baccatum)-This is not the popular Piquante pepper from South Africa which is a trademarked pepper. This variety I got from a friend in the U.K who obtained them from a friend who was working in the Country of Malawi. It tastes just like it though in my opinion. These chiles are very sweet with a little kick of heat. They can get to almost 1 inch in diameter and resemble a small cherry tomato. The plants grow very fast and can get over 5 feet tall and are very productive. Like many Capsicum baccatum varieties it takes a long season for fruit to ripen red. This pepper can be used many ways in sauces or cooking but is great when de-seeded and pickled. The Malawi Piquante chile plants grow over 4 feet tall.
