capsicum frutescens x capsicum annuum
A fun and beautiful chile to grow, and an extremely versatile medium hot pod to use in the kitchen.
Maturing from green to bright red, the pod looks amazing. Likened to a whippet dog's bumpy tail, it is a very long chile. Often over 30cm but curled around into all kinds of fun shapes.
It's so easy to cut up and add to whatever you're cooking. From salads, stir fries, curries, soups and the list goes on. A lovely flavour which is at home in any cuisine.
When fully grown the plant can grow reach a meter or more and is a reasonably prolific producer over the harvest season.
