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 we grew last year..
