Aribibi Gusano – aka Caterpillar Chilli
300,000 – 470,000 SHU
The Aribibi Gusano is a weird and wonderful looking habanero type chilli pepper. It originates from the city Aribibi in Bolivia and Gusano is the spanish word for worm – hence its name. Obviously it is also known as “Caterpillar Chilli Pepper” because of its caterpillar look. This is another relatively rare chilli that grows fairly compact into an umbrella like shape. Don’t let the little innocent shaped pods fool you this is a true hottie. Pods mature from a lovely light green to creamy white when ripe. They have a strong citrus flavour and the yield of the plants are very high.
