CAP 1478 Pepper
Here is the CAP 1478 Pepper, Capsicum praetermissum, Scoville units: 2,500 to 5,000+ SHU. This pepper originates from Brazil. Please don't confuse this with the CAP 1487 Pepper , they are two different varieties. This variety of pepper is well known growing wild in the mountains and often eaten by goats. The pods are a small bird type pepper and is mostly seeds inside. Fruits start out green in color and turn red when fully ripe. Plants can get to 6+ feet tall and tend to be a medium sized plant but if pruned and potted they tend to stay small like 2.5 feet tall and bushy. Pods have an amazing flavor with a very nice uniqueness and medium to low heat and very satisfying. Some peppers may be very hot so be careful! These make a great drying pepper with the walls being thin an will dry on the plant if left on. It's also good for fresh eating too! Very rare and hard to get variety! Open pollinated mid to late season 70 to 100 days.
