Chilli Bishop's Crown seeds
Yes, your ears are right, this chilli is called Bishop's Crown. Other's call it Christmas bells. Maybe you can preserve a few of them until Christmas as ornaments of your Christmas tree ;-)
The orighn of this chilli is probably Bolivia or Peru. In this areas scientist found evidence, that the variety capsicum baccatum, has been grown 2500 b.c.
If you grow this Bishop's Crown in really good conditions, that means in a greenhouse in our climate zone, this chilli plant will grow up to 2 m. The cultivation in pots or on the field means just half of this size. But anyway, the crop is still amazing. And it also survives short term temperatures of 0C°.
But please do not ralate to this. It is a usual discription of this chilli. But it somehow works just in it' place of orign. My chillies never survived these temperatures :-(
The heat of these chillies is medium to hot. If you remove the "intestines" of this chilli, you will be surprised of it' s flavour. Simply wonderful.
But you have to be really careful: just a small part of this chilli is enough for your meal. Always wear gloves, when touching this chilli and never allow your children, even to be near, when using it. Never hold your nose over a pan or pot, when you add it to your meal. Wait a few seconds, after that it should be safe.
Once more: keep away fron children. And I really mean it. The fruits look so nice and sweet...
