Orange Rocoto


Another rare Rocoto variety which has become another favorite pepper. These deep orange small size pod pepper grow on the tallest variety we ever seen. The plant can easily each 6 feet tall if growing conditions allow. The plant keeps growing and growing before finally start setting pods. Not a productive variety. However, it is one of the sweetest Rocoto we tried. The ripe pods taste like mango with medium levels heat. Such profile gives this pepper and advantage for making mango based hot sauce or jam. The plant requires long growing season for setting enough pods.
