Here is the Tehrani Pepper, Capsicum Frutescens, Scoville Units: 500 ~ 10,000 SHU. This is the true version of this pepper. This pepper originates from the city of Tehran in Iran. It produces pods that range in size from 2.5 inches to 6+ inches long. The shape of the pods are strange where they are kinda square and have a blunt nose at the end. The heat can vary quite a bit with little to no heat to 10,000 SHU or over! Plants are productive but are late season type and can take months to ripen. The flavor is a very unique kind to taste. Plants get to 3 feet tall and wide. We recommend growing it in a pot and bring it in for the winter. Open pollinated 120 days from transplanting.
