This wild pepper grows as a very compacted small sturdy bush. The pant only grows about one foot tall by two feet wide, yet, it is loaded with very small, very hot, very aromatic, very attractive pods. The plant requires a long growing season to mature and setting pods, the color changes from green to golden yellow. Everything in this plant is tiny the seeds, flowers, pod, and the leafs, but not the taste or the heat. For us it was the best Capsicum Chinense for growing in containers.
