Small red chilies from Peru, that have it in them. Nice for the eyes but also great in the kitchen.
Charapitas are sold dried for up to 20.000 EUR/Kg. This does not only provide attention in the media, but it makes is as well the most expensive spice in the world. We have received directly from Peru a special quality seed batch and have selected the rare red Charapita.
This half wild Capsicum chinense with a lot of small red berries originates from Peru. There it is known as Charapita Rojo, Aji Charapita Rojo and sometimes even Bird Charapita Red – the small chilies can be found pickled in vinegar and on the market you also can find them fresh.
In the tropical northern part of Peru, at the border to Brazil, is the main cultivation area of this variety. In Brazil there is the Cumari, which is very similar to the Charapita.
The plants can grow to a height of 80 cm and they like to branch out to the sides, so that they can have a diameter of 90 or even up to 110 cm. During the flowering phase they have small white blossom with a blue filament. This plant has a high yield.
The small round red fruit that grow to about 1 up to 1,5 cm in diameter remain also after the ripening period very fresh and crisp.
