Originating from Oaxaca Mexico, this rarely offered thin walled medium hot pepper is locally used sauces and soups.
The fruits average 8cm long by 1.5cm wide developing green and maturing to a deep red.
The plants have a slightly unusual almost fuzzy feel to the stems and leaves with white flowers.
Unsurprisingly this variety is used extensively in Mexican cuisine.
