So after growing the Count Dracula chilli how could we resist growing the Vampire. It is just as striking with the fruit also going from a deep black to green and then a BLOOD red…It has the typical annuum characteristics as it’s super easy maintenance/growing whilst pumping out pod after pod all season long. The foliage gets black too if you give it full sun which makes it even more of a growing temptation. Taste wise you wont be disappointed as the Vampire fruit are medium thick walled with a sweet and juicy tang that’s only moderate in heat. Pods on average are about 6cm long and 2 cm wide with the plant growing about a meter in a pot.
The Venezuelan Tiger chilli quite obviously originates from Venezuela. They also appear to be quite rare! There seems to be a roundish type and a longer type. Apparently they all taste the same. While they have no heat to speak of, they have a great sweet flavour and very juicy! These are ideal for stuffing as some of them grow very large! A very prolific and rewarding plant to grow!

We all love white chillies, and the White Chupetinho is a great example. It took us a while to get this rare beauty. It originates from Brazil where they are used extensively. They are juicy and crunchy and are very prolific! They are most commonly used in salads or in soups and stews but especially pickled! The White Chupetinho is a really good chilli and commonly used as an ornamental as well. This will soon be one of your favourites!

We love the Yellow Brazilian Starfish. While it doesn’t have much heat at all, around the same as a Jalapeno, the taste is great. The first thing you can taste is apples. It is thick walled and crunchy, also very prolific! The little heat it does have presents itself as almost “fizzy”. Its very unusual! These are great tossed into a salad. Although still rare, its one of the best mild chilies ever!
