Liebesapfel (Capsicum annuum)

Pronounced Lee-bes-app-full. A very sweet pimento cheese type pepper from Germany. Cheese peppers get the name cheese because Spanish Artisan cheese makers used them for their sweetness and coloring for their cheeses centuries ago. The name Liebesapfel means "Love Apple". This name has also been given to a variety of Tomato.

The Liebesapfel peppers ripen from green to brown and finally red. Sweetest when red. It is an early producer and does well in cooler climates and shorter growing seasons. It is great for salads, roasting or stuffing. The Liebesapfel chile Plants get just over 2 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!
