The delicious Malawi Piquante Pepper was first discovered in 1993 in South Africa. Everybody know this delicious chilli stuffed with cream cheese after it was introduced to the culinary world as Peppadew. It looks like a cross between a mini capsicum and a cherry tomato. Malawi Piquante Pepper is a Capsicum Baccatum and the plant gets to about 2 meters in a pot and is an awesome producer. It doesn’t like full sun, so give it 50/50. Flavour wise: It’s so sweet and fruity. Pickled and stuffed with cream cheese and chives you will feel you are in heaven, when you eat them. Heat wise: Has a little pleasant burn, 4/10

Peppers often like to take their sweet time germinating. They can be up in a week, and some will take almost a month. Even with paper towel germination testing, they can take long. I’m not sure why, but it is a normal occurrence. So plan ahead and make sure you start them early enough! Also remember they like heat to germinate so make sure you have a heating mat or something to keep the soil warm. Placing them up on top of the fridge often works too since it is normally warmer up there
Peppers do very well grown in pots.
I purchased the peppers, and although I know there are many variabilities with seed starting, none of the peppers germinated.
