Takanotsume Pepper

Capsicum Annuum

“Great in anything that needs a bit of a punch”

Takanotsume Pepper comes from Japan. It’s  also known as the Hawk Claw Chilli, probably due to its talon shape. The plant grows to about 50 cm in a pot and would grow a bit bigger, if you plant it in the ground. The pods grow upright in clumps and are about 4-5 cm long. Ripen from light green to red when mature. It has a stingy hot burn that lingers and would go great in anything that needs a bit of a punch. Used in the Japanese cuisine. Great looking little plant.

    Grown this for a few years now and it’s become a culinary favorite for Asian cooking. Medium heat, not overpowering, some acidity, great in cooking or just as a condiment chopped in soy sauce. In a 5 gallon pot it only grows to around 3 feet tall and is great to have just outside your kitchen door so you can help yourself to fresh chillies from the plentiful supply it will put out throughout the season.
