Bishop's crown, Christmas bell seeds (Capsicum baccatum)
Like other types of Capsicum baccatum the bell chili is originally from Peru and Bolivia. The fruit have a decorative shape and a fruity, pleasantly spicy flavor if the core and seeds are removed. Outdoors our plants reach a height of 2 metres and are extremely productive, so due to the weight of the branches with fruit, plants should be supported with canes. If grown in a pot size and productivity will be significantly lower. The cultivation in colder countries such as Germany is a bit more complex because of the long period of ripening, and plants should ideally be planted in March. In Spain there is no such problem.
Hotness (1-10): 5-6 without seeds and the core / 7 with seeds and the pulp
