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.

Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!

 

I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

Zero out of pocket expense.

91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.

Not every home qualifies, but if you are even slightly interested in learning if your home does, please click the link below which will redirect you to a new page and have the best salesman I have ever met give you a call. His name is James Johns and you have my word that he is ethical, honest and sincere.

Yes, I will get a referral bonus if you end up purchasing. But guess what? SO WILL YOU!
