Biquinho Yellow Pepper
78-95 days. C. Chinense
This little pepper from Brazil packs a lot of flavor into a little package. Marble sized fruits with a pointed blossom end (biquinho is Portuguese for “little beak”) have all the tropical fruity flavor of the chinense peppers (habanero family) but with barely a suggestion of heat.
The Biquinho Yellow pepper plants grow 3 to 4 feet tall.
May be eaten raw or cooked, but is generally pickled in vinegar and served with meals.
