If you love the flavor of hot chili peppers, but have problems with their spicy "heat," then a variety of heirloom chili pepper from the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais might just be the solution to your problems.
Pimenta De Bico, also known as "Little Beak" or Chupetinha peppers, are mildly hot, small, round and a brilliant scarlet-red with a small beak-shaped protuberance hanging from the end. The highly productive plant makes a beautiful ornamental plant, and many of these plants grace Brazilian gardens and yards. Works well for Chili Pepper Bonsai ( Bonchi )
The incredible rich flavor of these small chilies are perfect served as a "red Hersheys kiss"garnish or as an appetizer with cheese, drink decoration or can be used to make chutney and perk up almost any soup, stew or braised dish.
Other Names: Biquinho, Chupetinha, Little Beak, Rubber Nipple, Peruvian Sweety Drop pepper, Teardrop pepper, Pimenta de Bico ou Biquinho, Biquinho Iracema, Brazilian pimenta
