Galapagos Island Wild Pepper Type 1
Here is the Galapagos Island Wild Pepper Type 1, 97450083, Capsicum galapagoense, Scoville units: 1,500 to 5,000+ SHU. This pepper originates from Galapagos Islands of Isabela & Santa Cruz and in the main land of Ecuador. Please don't confuse this with the CGN-22208 Capsicum galapagoense Pepper , they are two different varieties. This variety of pepper is very rare and found growing wild in the highlands. The pods are a small bird type pepper with a bow-tail shape and is mostly seeds inside. This variety is not a pubescent type but a smooth stem and leaf. Fruits start out green in color and turn red when fully ripe. Plants can get to 4+ 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 120 days.
