Type: Capsicum Chinese
A super dope, rare and productive variety from Brazil. One of the most unique looking pepper plants you will ever come across! Dark purplish green leaves make this one quite strange. The Cheiro Roxa pods start off as a dank purple and eventually become a creamy pink color that’s quite amazing! Would be really interesting as a hybrid.
Great, fresh taste for a plant which could be considered ornamental! Juicy and thin skinned. Has a bright chinense flavor like the Habanero, but more tropical, fruity and sour. Occasionally very sweet. These are much tastier when ripe.
The heat of the Cheiro Roxa
The spice is neat, almost like drinking a carbonated beverage. Very close to the CGN 21500 and in a lot of ways, just hotter and more sour. Front of mouth burn, and it sticks around for a bit, too. The question is what to pick between the CGN 21500 and the Cheiro Roxa if you could only grow one? Not sure–grow both!
