Growing the Manzano Pepper


Name - Orange Manzano
Species - (Capsicum Pubescens)
Scoville Rating
12,000 - 30,000 SHU

"Manzano" which means "apple" for its apple-shaped fruit is found primarily in Central and South America region of Chile and Argentina and also parts of Bolivia. The manzano pepper ripens to a bright orange and contains black seeds within it like its cousin the Red Rocoto pepper from South America. It also is know for it's purple flowers and can survive very cold temperatures as low as the 30's although it cannot withstand frost. They also have a thick skin which makes them difficult to dry so it is best to use them while they are fresh fresh.

Manzano Peppers are great for making salsa with medium heat, Hot Sauce, great for adding to soups for a little summer heat in the cold winter months ;) The thick flesh makes them great for stuffing and they will keep fresh in the refrigerated for up to two weeks.
