Chilli Pepper Zimbabwe is a Capsicum annuum which is a species of the plant genus Capsicum native to southern North America, the Caribbean, and northern South America. This species is the most common and extensively cultivated of the five domesticated capsicums. The species encompasses a wide variety of shapes and sizes of peppers, both mild and hot, such as bell peppers, jalapeños, and cayenne peppers. Capsicum annuum is an evergreen Perennial growing to 1m by 1m at a medium rate. It is hardy to UK zone 9 and is frost tender. It is in leaf all year, in flower from July to September, and the seeds ripen from August to October. The species is hermaphrodite (which has both male and female organs).

It produces numerous small finger-like chillies on a well branched plant. The chillies are held upright and are not only ornamental but edible with a fairly mild heat level.

Chilli Pepper Zimbabwe Black skin is thin and so these chillies dry really well but they are also perfect for using fresh too.
