aka 'Aribibi gusano'
Petite, unassuming umbrella-shaped plants absolutely drip with small one-inch creamy white irregularly shaped wrinkled fruits. But don't be fooled! These peppers pack a powerful punch of habanero heat!
Originating from the city Aribibi in Bolivia located in the Amazon, The word 'aribibi' in Bolivia is a term for people who are quarrelsome, loud and create a raucous - what should be compared to the heat of this innocent looking pepper. Gusano is the Spanish word for worm.
Pods mature from a lovely light green to creamy white when ripe. They have a strong citrus flavor (once you get past the heat) and the yields of the plants are very high. Fruits are rather thin-walled and dry quite easily left out on the counter which makes them a great choice for grinding into powder.
