Recipe: Hot rice salad

Chili Pepper Files
August 27, 2008



Chili Pepper FilesI received Peruvian Collnew seeds from a friend, but I didn't find anything about this pepper on Internet.
It's a Capsicum Annuum, and it ripe from green to orange. The pods are hot, crisp and flavoury.


You can use Hot Lemon pepper instead of Peruvian Collnew, they're similar in piquancy and flavour.

Peruvian Collnew

Peruvian Collnew (Capsicum Annuum)


Heat: Hot
Taste/flavour: Fruity
Wall thickness: Medium
Plant productivity: Prolific
Number of seeds per pod: Enough
Pod lenght: 6 - 7 cm
Plant height: 70 cm
Colour: From pale green to bright orange.


Why grow it?:
Peruvian Collnew chilies are tasty, but also with a strange, crinkled shape. The plant can be grow as an ornamental chili.

Memo:
The plant is so prolific that I freeze many Peruvian Collnew pods, cut into slices. They can also be dried.

This looks and sounds very good and easy. We don t have those particular peppers, but I imagine pepperoncini or Hungarian wax peppers would suffice. Welcome to Grow Your Own!

Hi Andrea, I guess Hungarian Wax or any yellow or orange pepper will be good!
