(Capsicum chinense ‘White Chupetinho’)
A lovely white chilli, that originates from Brazil wherethey are used extensively in a range of food types. They are juicy, crunchy and pretty on the bush, picked or even as a cut flower.
Basil – lemon, lime and greenruffles, garlic, ginger, coriander, Vietnamese coriander, lemon grass, chives. Seafood, all meats and most vegetables along with coconut, lime and lemon all go well with chillis. These little gems are eaten raw as a snack, in salads and widely as a pickled snack.
Chillis form an integral part of many Asian and Latin American dishes along with some European, African and North American. Indeed over time most cuisines have added this fiery little fruit into their recipes. There are many forms that vary in colour, shape, flavour and of course heat. This variety produces large yields of small, pure white nipple chillis that are very popular in African dishes.
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 chillis.
