Berbere Coffee Brown
“A unique chilli from Ethiopia”
It is not often we have a chilli from Ethiopia, but here we have a really rare and unique one.
The plant grows well in a pot to about 50-60 cm tall. The pods are elongated, 10 cm long and 2-2,5 cm wide, start off green and end up a warm chocolate brown. The flesh of the pod is firm even though the walls are thin and it is so juicy.
It would be excellent for making your own hot sauce or 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 fairly good producer.
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
