This is a very compact and densely foliated plant which produces an abundance of red, thin-skinned hot peppers. It is a type of squash pepper.

It matures from green to a vibrant yellow.

The interesting shape and spicy taste make this a chilli which is good to eat fresh, pickled, or as a garnish.

The pods are larger than a Scotch Bonnet about 5cm width at the top and 4cm long. They are reputed to have a slight pineapple flavour.
