“A unique chilli from Ethiopia”
It is not often we have a chilli from Ethiopia, but here we have Berbere Coffee Brown – a really rare and unique variety.
The plant grows well in a pot to about 70 cm in height.
The pods are elongated and start off green. When they are fully mature the pods have warm chocolate brown. The flesh of the pod is firm even though the walls are thin and it is so juicy.
Would be an excellent choice for a hot sauce or try and dry them and make your own powder.
All in all a great looking rare one, easy to grow, more cold tolerant, so therefore it has long season and is a great producer.
Pods size: 10 cm long and 2-2,5 cm wide
Flavour wise: They have a fruity tangy flavour with a smoky taste as well. A very different flavour, that is hard to describe, but it is really nice.
Heat level: Upper mid heat with a pleasant burn
