Capsicum baccatum


The Malawi Piquante pepper is also known as 'Peppadew'. A delightfully sweet little pepper with just a touch of heat that resembles a cherry tomato, delicious pickled and stuffed with goat cheese or any number of delicious fillings. This is the darling of the culinary world! 


These plants can get *very* tall - up to 6'! - so be sure you have a good trellis or cage for them. This one also would prefer a bit of afternoon shade. Be patient - Capsicum baccatum varieties can take quite a while to ripen. You won't be disappointed!
