Widespread in the Andes from Venezuela to Bolivia at higher altitudes, this "tree chili" is one of the least distributed and most unique of cultivated pepper plants and can attain the size of a small tree with semi-woody stems and hairy leaves, even though it is usually seen only as a large herb or subshrub.
Its small, red or yellow fruits are ferociously hot and are widely used in Andean cuisine. The small seeds are black. Germination: Sow peppers indoors 6-8 weeks before transplanting. Plant seeds at a depth of ¼ inch and make sure the soil remains warm throughout the germination period. Time to Germination: The germination period typically lasts 14-18 days.
