Pimenta Biquinho or Little Beak Pepper plant, also known as Chupetinho, Pimenta de Bico or Chupetinha
is native to Minas Gerais, Brazil. The Biquinho Pepper plant has captivating foliage of dark-green glossy leaves with red and yellow fiery “Hershey’s kisses” shaped Biquinho peppers. This plant produces a mass of chilli fruits also known as ‘sweety drops’ which hang from the plant like small lanterns. Coming from the Habaneros family, Little beak peppers have mild heat level, making them perfect picks for anyone who loves the taste of chilli peppers but does not prefer the ‘heat’ that comes with it. The fast-growing, sweet and fruity flavor of the Biquinho peppers makes it a delicious addition to salads, cheese platters or can be enjoyed on its own or pickled in vinegar.
Belonging to the tropics, the Chupetinho or Pimenta de Bico pepper plant cannot withstand hard winters hence planting them in pots would be convenient to move them indoors when the weather gets cold. It is a fast-growing plant that needs plenty of sun. Water once the top layer of the soil is dry. For optimum growth humidity in the range of 50% to 70% should be maintained.
*Please note when you purchase the larger sizes you make have significant leaf loss or damage but since it is a fast grower it will return quickly to it's size*
Available in the following packaging based on your preference:
- Nursery Pot - Standard plastic 4, 6 or 8-inch planter pot that can be placed inside a larger decorative pot or left as is until it outgrows it.
