Cheiro Roxa (Capsicum chinense)

A very rare variety from Brazil that has a nice sweet flavor and lower heat than a habanero. The Cheiro Roxa chile plant is one of the prettiest peppers you will ever grow. It ripens from a dark purple to a light pinkish purple color. These chile plants are very productive. The peppers are about one inch in diameter. Cheiro Roxa chile plants grow over 3 feet tall.

At Refining Fire Chiles we isolate our seed production plants to avoid cross-pollination with other chile species. If you want to try it yourself contact us for seeds, plants (March-August) and fresh chiles (September).

We also grow the Trinidad 7 Pot, Trinidad Scorpion, Naga Morich, Chocolate Habanero and many other Hot Chile Pepper plant varieties!
