C. Anuum x C. Chinense
Barbara’s Antipodes may be one of the most versatile chillies ever! It is the unusual but deliberate cross of a Sweet Bell Pepper and a Bhut Jolokia. It was bred by Florian Hauch in Germany back in 2007. Since then he has grown it to at least F11 so it’s completely stable. Florian generously gave some of his seeds exclusively to us at Chilli Seedz. We would say it tastes like a really good Capsicum, sweet and juicy with a really good mellow punch of heat. To put it short, it’s brilliant! Salads, stir fry and, being about one third the size of a big capsicum, is great for stuffing. The possibilities are endless and you guys are going to be the first in Australia to have it! Germination rate is down a little, about 70%. Still great!
