Buy now your Chiltepin Sonora Orange chili seeds and plant them soon!
This is practically the wild original form of chillies, as you can still find them in Mexico, Arizona and Texas.
The ripe, almost round fruits are orange, thin-fleshed, only about pea-sized and extremely fiery. However, the extreme hear of the chillies quickly disappears again. The berries dry well. The typical use in their North Mexican home is in salsas, soups and stews. In its native country, the bushy plant grows up to 2 m high, but this orange chiltepin plant is extremely rare in the wild.
The fruits need about 90 to 120 days to ripen, sometimes even up to 200 days.
Well suited as a potted plant - sometimes even more productive in the second year, which makes overwintering very worthwhile.
The frugal plants need little fertilizer.
