Rocoto Orange Pepper
Here is the Rocoto Orange Pepper, CAP 867, Capsicum pubescens, Scoville units: 500 to 12,000+ SHU. This peppers origins are unknown at this point. The pods are a small to medium sized pepper with a short stocky body shape and a medium heat. The pods can range in size from 1 to 2 inches round. Fruits start out green in color and turn to yellow or orange when fully ripe. Please note that sometimes a red variation can come out but not common, we are selling them as the orange type. Plants can get to 3.5+ feet tall and tend to be a medium-large sized plant but if pruned and potted they tend to stay small like 3 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 medium 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 80 to 120+ days.
