Murupi Amarela (Capsicum chinense)

A very productive variety from the northern regions of Brazil. Often dried into powders or used in traditional sauces. The peppers get a few inches long almost 3/8 inch thick. They are wrinkled and distorted and ripen to a creamy white color. If left on the plant too long they will get a little more yellow in pigment.

The plants are great producers. The heat is as hot as any habanero so don't let the mild look fool you. The Murupi Amarela Chile plants can get up to 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!
