Cumari Pollux is a wild chilli from magnificent rainforest in the heart of Brazil. This chilli would be a must have for the serious chilli collectors. It is rare variety even for the Brazilians themselves. The plant grows well in a pot for years, if you protected it from frost. It is a great producer of tiny pods (3-4 mm) and the pods mature from green to bright red. It’s very prolific with heaps of pods on the plant.
Cumari Pollux would be great in a tomato soup, stir-fry, chilli con carne or drying. It packs a punch with a decent burn, that lasts for ages. After a little bit the flavour starts and you will get a great fruity taste.
All in all a rare prolific wild chilli and of the wild treasures from the rainforest.
Flavour wise: Fruity and juicy with little tang. When it’s dried it has a sweet nutty taste.
Heat level: A little firecracker 8/15
