Portugal is a fiery cayenne producing fruits up to 20cm long. It is one of the earliest large fruiting chillies. The thick fleshed fruits mature to a lovely deep scarlet.
Similar in appearance to a Numex Big Jim pod but alot more fire.
We use them roasted and stuffed with tomatoes and garlic topped with rapeseed oil and basil. Delicious!

Here's one in a pot (immature plant)
