Madre Vieja Chilli
Madre Vieja Chilli probably originates from southwestern Guatemala, where the Madre Vieja river can be found. Madre Vieja means “old mother” in Spanish.
A rather compact looking plant, that grows well in a pot to around 80-90 cm in height, and it’s easy to grow. Furthermore a great producer and it has a long growing season.
First the pods start a light green colour and then they change to warm yellow, when they are fully mature.
The Madre Vieja would be a great choice for a delicious chilli sauce, or dry the pods and make your own chilli powder.
All in all an amazing looking plant, a great producer of chillies with a deep upper mid heat burn and a distinct flavour. A flavour we never had before, and we really like it. If you are after something with a different flavour profile or are an Aji lemon fan then this would be excellent
