Rocoto (Capsicum pubescens)
 

Mine have overwintered nicely - now to see how they crop this year!
People who want to overwinter chillis, but have difficulty, might
like to try this species, because it is naturally a perennial.
It is hot, I like the taste, but it doesn't dry brilliantly because
it is thick-fleshed. It has black seeds :-)


Regards,
Nick Maclaren.

Thank you for that Nick. Not tried that variety and whenever I have
tried to overwinter it's been a waste of time. Does it freeze well?

No idea, because we don't do that. I still have some fresh ones
hanging on the plant, though rather more have shrivelled and dropped
off.
