 Capsicum frutescens
Family: Solanaceae
Wiri Wiri Pepper
Origin: Guyana
small shrub 2-5 ftfull sunsemi-shaderegular waterwhite/off-white flowersspice or herbediblesubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

A variety from Guyana, the Wiri Wiri pepper is the illustrious gem; hard sought and rarely found.

Hot peppers, in general, are beautiful, regardless of shape and size. The colors are vibrant, displaying every possible shade of gorgeous red, orange, and yellow. Just looking at them can make your eyes tear and mouth water! The image alone of a hot pepper is very iconic, always resembling the spicy and the exotic.

The Wiri Wiri peppers come from the deep edges of Guyana, pushing into the Brazilian rainforest. They are the real thing, and just like anything genuine, there is nothing quite like it.

What makes it so much different than any other hot pepper grown in the garden or bought at the store?

Hot? Yes, it is important that hot peppers are, but the people who really know, know that it is not just about heat, it is about flavor! And that is exactly what makes this little red gem so special. Guyanese dinners will only take one of those meals for you to never forget! The secret of their food is the flavor, and one of the cornerstone ingredients in many of their dishes is the Wiri pepper. A traditional Guyanese Christmas dinner would be pork stuffed with course leaf thyme and Wiri peppers. The Guyanese population claim that it is not just a key ingredient to their diet, but also to why they are so good looking, live so long, and have such great skin.
