Capsicum chinense ‘Biquinho’ – Little Beak Pepper (4″ pot)


This variety of peppers are round and little, with a distinctive tapered point or tail that resembles a bird’s beak (hence the name). Multiple colors of sunshine yellow, orange, or scarlet-red can be seen on the plant at one time. These peppers are not spicy at all but have a rather sweet and fruity habanero-like flavor. Since these peppers are not hot, they are perfect to be tossed in a salad or great to be pickled.

Ships in a 4″ pot. Does not come with peppers but is mature to bare peppers.

A beautiful looking plant from Brazil. With its heaps of drop-shaped pods, it is a great ornamental plant. Grows well with well-draining soil, allowing the top inch of soil to dry in between waterings. The peppers average about 1-2 inches in size starting yellowy green and ripening to a bright and shiny scarlet red. They are thin-skinned with lots of seeds. Biquinho – Little Beak Peppers are excellent for vitamins A and C and also contain minerals such as potassium, magnesium, iron, and dietary fiber.
