Moshi (Capsicum annuum)

The Moshi is a very rare but extremely productive hot pepper variety from Tanzania, Africa. The peppers get the name from the village of Moshi which is located at the base of the famous Mount Kilimanjaro. A known exotic seed collector obtained it from his friend from Africa and that is how it made it's way to us. The peppers ripen from green to red and are 2 inches long with a pointy end. The Moshi chile plants grow between 4 to 5 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!
