Pronounced bee-KEE-nyo, this beautiful pepper originated from Brazil. Also known as the "little beak" pepper or the "Chupetinho". They are shaped as a reversed tear drop and grow to about an inch in length. They are great when pickled and look amazing in salads and go well in salsas too. The heat of the pepper is described as adding a little kiss of heat due to its mild level of spiciness. The plant produces an enormous amount of fruits and grows 2-3 feet in height. A must have addition for anyone’s garden.
