From the Christopher Phillips Rare Seed Collection R8--Release #8 on October 29, 2015 --- This Capsicum annuum is one of Christopher's varieties from an extensive collection of South African pepper strains. Original seeds came from a friend in that region. This pepper came to Christopher with the generic term birdseye, but the peppers are longer than the average type. The plants produce extremely well putting out 2 inch long peppers that ripen from green to red. The pepper has a quick, sharp burn.
