Criolla de Cocina (Capsicum annuum)

A very sweet aromatic variety from Nicaragua. Peppers can get the size of a baseball and have a wrinkled exterior. Very productive the Criolla de Cocina chiles ripen from dark green to red. The peppers themselves are thin walled but can be used for sauces, roasting, stuffing and frying. The Criolla de Cocina chile plants grow just under three 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!
