One of the most unique chile peppers I’ve ever seen! The looks of this plant is very beautiful! From Malaysia.

The name means “Purple Bird Pepper”.
The pods mature from the tiny shiny deep purple to orange-purple to through
purplish crimson red to bright red.
The taste is typical to C. frutescens species, very suitable to use as flakes or powder or whole pods in a hot soup for example.
In colder climates this one should be grown indoors or in a greenhouse. Or if you can extend the growth by taking the plant indoors later autumn, you can grow it outdoors too.
An article about this fascinating variety here.
Very limited supply!
Challenge: 2 (easy to grow, just needs enough warmth and light and a longer season.)
