Queen Laurie (Capsicum baccatum)
The Queen Laurie pepper is from Peru. Also called Queen Laury. It ripens from green to orange. It is very crunchy and sweet.
It has a heat level above a jalapeno. The fruit of the Queen Laurie chile plant can get over 4 inches long and average about
a 1/2 inch in diameter. The Queen Laurie chile plants like other bacattum varieties can get over 4 feet tall.
This is a great medium sauce pepper. Very fruity in flavor. These chile plants grow very fast so be prepared to stake your Queen Laurie chile plant.
