From the Christopher Phillips Rare Seed Collection R6--Release #6 on January 16, 2015. This is another beautfiul Thai variety Christopher acquired from one of his favorite Thai restaurants. It truly jumped out at him when he noticed the pods go through a beautiful black stage before ripening to a final dark red shade. The pods are pencil thin and about 2.5 - 3.0 inches long. These offer both culinary and ornamental value in one package! If you enjoy this one, be sure to check out Christopher's other unusual Black Thai TQ variety up for sale in his collection. This other variety generates larger pods that have a different look/shape.
