Capsicum chinense "CGN 21500"

CGN 21500 chilli plant

CGN 21500

ripe chillies

Notes

A very distinct chilli with highly unusual colouring. The chillies start dark purple with a green tip, turning reddish purple as they grow and finally mature to orange with a deep pink flush. A good ornamental with sweet fruity chillies.

Culinary

A very tasty chilli. Heat starts at back of throat, fades fairly quickly, and then moves to front of mouth and lips. The thick, juicy flesh is ideal for making salsa.
