Around 1993, in South Africa, a very savvy entity decided that they were going to trademark (???!!!???) this pepper that is a very common wild landrace called Malawi piquante.


Alas, gardeners are a very seedy lot and we don't take kindly to anyone holding Mother Nature's genetics hostage just for the sake of the almighty dollar. Suffice it to say that seeds aren't that difficult to source if you know enough seedy people...


Medium thick fleshed fruits are both spicy, yet sweet and crunchy. They are primarily grown to be stuffed or pickled (which is my preferred method of delivery).


Speaking of which, here's a link to the best-ever recipe for PICKLED PEPPADEWS.


Plants prefer a bit of shade, so easterly light exposure is best. Plants can potentially be beasts, but if you grow them in a pot they won't get as large. A bit slow to get up to speed, once they do you will be rewarded with dozens of golf ball sized beauties! This variety is a good candidate for over-wintering in the house.


Sold in a 2.62" wide x 3.5" deep pot.
