Info

While most garden peppers are annuals, this perennial pepper will over-winter & become a 6’ shrub. It has been grown in Peru & Bolivia for 5000 years & last year I was fortunate to receive peppers from Joe Carrasco, all grown from seed he brought back to California from Bolivia. The large (& very beautiful) yellow fruit has thick flesh like a Bell Pepper, though variable in heat, it is a HOT pepper with great flavor. Joe recommends growing it in a barrel during its first year & planting it in the garden next year. Have a trellis ready to support the branches & the fruit. It prefers some shade but is OK in sun & while fairly hardy, it will get damaged by hard frost. Grows very well in Sunset Zone 17, protect it if the temperatures go below 30F. In Spring cut back by 1/3 & remove any damaged branches.
