(Capsicum baccatum pendulum ‘Bishop’s Crown’)
Heat Rating out of 10: 3
A largish bush with medium sized fruit that has three sided fruit in a classic Bishop’s crown shape. Like many chillies it originates from South America and was transported around the world by the Portuguese.
Most meats, seafoods and vegetables along with coconut, lime and lemon all go well with chillies. Bishop’s Crown has large distinctive fruit with a good flavour and mild heat rating.
Chillies form an integral part of many Asian and Latin American dishes along with some European, African and North American.
Plant in a protected spot out of fierce sunlight and wind in a well drained but moist soil. May need some support when it ages.
Regular applications of Seasol and PowerFeed will keep the plant looking good and producing lots of tasty chillies.
