A very unusual European Heirloom variety which produces baby carrot like hot fruits up to 10cm in length on 70cm plants. The native name is "Shipkas" but the adoptive name better describes the pods.
The fruits ripen to a bright glossy orange with a crunchy flesh. Fruits are very attractive with a medium hot pungency, conical in shape similar to a carrot and approx 9cm long. These are produced in abundance and grow in clusters close to the stem.
The compact plants are ideal for growing in pots. They produce masses of 8-10cm long pods and are early yielding.
