Capsicum cardenasii

Cardenasii is believed to be the mother of all Capsicum, so it is special to me. It originates from Bolivia and Peru, and sometimes goes under the name Ulupica.

I can not remember the last time when my cardenasii produced pods. But this year it has been flowering a lot, and actually produced a couple of tiny pods. The pods are less than a centimeter in size.

I can't wait for tasting the pods when they are ripe! :-)


  1. Absolutely beautiful. Congratulations. Could this novis humbly ask for a seed or two if you get enough? I might have something that's of interest for you in return?

  2. Hi Jan! I just sent you an e-mail. Hope I have the right e-mail address. Otherwise let me know.
