Wonderful wild chili type from Peru. The name means “Monkey Boy”.

Why is this one so great you might ask? Well, besides being a wild, fascinating wild chili type, it’s also quite hot,  has a very unique peppery aroma, which works great as a dried powder as well as fresh small rings with your cooking!
First try it on your pizza instead of the pickled Jalapenos, and you might be surprised.
Besides all the other good things, this one is super prolific. Prepare to pick hundreds and hundreds of pods from each plant.

Very tolerant plant as it tolerates a little cold, heat and other harsh conditions. Easy to grow either as a small plant in a small pot or as a huge, tall big plant!

This Monkey Boy is quite a must have for all chili lovers!
