Seeds - chile Dedo de Moca Hot

No reviews
Add to Wishlist

An easy to grow medium hot South American variety.  A non-sweet baccatum which is one of the favourite chiles used by Brazilians for cooking.

A tall gangly plant with pendant type pods  around 6 cm long. Thick skinned and juicy with a great stinging heat which lingers is paired with a fantastic flavour.

When dried and ground it is known in the south of Brazil as pimenta-calabresa.

This variety comes from a fairly tropical humid region.  Temperature, moisture, and air circulation are all important when growing Dedo de Moca chiles from seed.  Not enough heat, too much moisture, and a lack of air circulation can lead to disease and fungal problems.  Avoid jiffy peat pots or plugs as the soil condition is difficult to keep stable.
