Orange Torpedo Rocoto
Approx. 50,000 SHU
Our very first Rocoto variety, the Orange Torpedo is one we have obtained from the PATCH ON THE BELLARINE. We love the colour, we love the shape and most importantly we love the flavour. A chilli much prized in its native Mexico City for use primarily in salsas, it has an amazing sweet apple-like flavour. The Pubescens species is quite different from other chilli species. It has hairy foliage and contains more Dihydrocapsaicin than capsaicin resulting in a different deeper and longer burn. Go on give it a go.
