I think you might be right there.
@pete I think they might be these Pepper Chilli - Pearls (Biquinho) at Suttons Seeds
Thanks Marley, but I think the shape is wrong, these dont have that beak. These ones do look more like the right shape Large Red Cherry Chilli Seeds The ones in the jar are from S. Africa.
Pretty sure I saw those when I visited. Very attractive on the plant.
Is that S. Africa or the Chilli Farm? I visited the Chilli farm about 6 yrs ago, S. Africa is still on the list
Is there still an annual Chilli festival at West Dean? I always intended to go......
The chilli farm
@pete I had my head in the cupboard this afternoon and pulled out a jar of the peppers that you posted. Turns out that the pepper is called piquante. A quick google from there said that jalapeno is 2 to 7 times hotter.
I've seen the word piquant on the label but it never occured to me that was the variety. I thought that was a description of the flavour.
Me too - every days a school day
Technically it is but the company (Peppadew) decided to brand name the ones they use as Piquante. They sell their version of the chilli to the farmers that produce the chillies for them. They're actually from a very large family of chillies called baccatum (lemon drop, mentioned earlier, is one of them). The one that @Marley Farley showed is quite likely to be the same but it can't be sold under that name. That version of baccatum is fairly mild.
Chilli's ...... What are Chilli's ?
I've got my ticket booked for here this year to camp over :- https://www.gigantic.com/east-midlands-chilli-beer-and-artisan-festival-tickets
Sounds good. Have you been to this one? It's not too far for you - about 20 minutes from us. CHILLI FESTIVAL
