Pumpkin Cili Pepper
The Pumpkin Cili Pepper is a very rare chilli from parts unknown. Chilli grower Alice Lennard in Sydney shared this chilli variety with us, and it looks amazing – we love it.
This variety is a small chilli plant, that grows to about 50-60 cm high in a pot. It is therefore an excellent chilli plant for a terrace or a balcony.
It fills with upwards growing wonderful looking pumpkin shaped pods. The pods are 1-2cm high and 4-5 cm wide, they start off a deep/dark purple and ripen to red.
The pods are crispy and crunchy with a sweet flavour with a bit of a fruity tang to it. The flavour stays for ages and doesn’t get overpowered by the heat, so a perfect choice for salads or sliced and tossed into a stir fry.
