(C. Chinense) We are firmly on the Biquinho bandwagon. This little pepper from Brazil packs a lot of flavor into a little package. Marble sized fruits with a pointed blossom end (biquinho is Portuguese for “little beak”) have all the tropical fruity flavor of the chinense peppers (habanero family) but with barely a suggestion of heat. Traditionally, mixed yellow and red peppers are pickled in a lightly sweetened 50/50 vinegar and cachaça (a sugarcane-based liquor) brine which makes for delicious snacking or additions to hors d’oeuvres/cheese plates. Sturdy, upright and heavily branched 2’ plants with abundant sets of hanging fruit have a very attractive plant architecture that lends itself well to container growing. Prolific and early for a tropical pepper. See also 'Biquinho Yellow' for yellow strain.
