Bolivian Rainbow Chilli
The Bolivian Rainbow Chilli is from Bolivia. A beautiful looking plant that gets its name from the colours, purple, yellow, orange through to red. A rainbow of colours.
The plants grow bushy and get to around 50 cm in a pot and about the same wide. It fills with 100’s of teardrop shaped pods that get to 2.5-3 cm long and 1 cm wide. They start off a purple and they go through yellow to orange and red, when the plant is full of multicoloured pods it looks amazing.
Flavour wise: Crunchy and very seedy, crisp fresh taste with a slight tang/salty flavour, not very pronounced and light, quite nice actually.
Heat level: Medium heat.
All in all the Bolivian Rainbow Chilli is a great little plant. It’s great for the space challenged, because if you plant it in a smaller pot, it won’t get really big. If you love colourful peppers with a nice flavour and great mid heat burn, then this would be one for you.
