Mata Frade, does anyone have any info??
« : Syyskuu 28, 2009, 22:48:09 ip »
Hello everyone,
Does anybody Have any information about the Mata Frade pepper,
I currently have what I believe to be two small plants growing now...(thanks to Daniel)

From what I have been able to gather, is that the seeds came from Roraima State (Northern Brazil, the Amazon region), and it grows upright, it's green when immature then matures to a violet color, measures + or - 1.5 cm in length and 0.5 cm in width and is very hot, it's suposed to be one very rare species of hot pepper... As yet I don't know what species it is!

Here's a few pics, not much to see yet!

Looks very interesting, kinda resembles dark C. chinense, like Pimenta da Neyde, I assume it will have dark pods like Neyde... will be interesting to see if they change their color when they ripen!

Unusual variety anyways, congrats!

Hello everyone,
here are a few pics,
sorry not much has happened as they are very slow growers





They are about 30cm tall now,
2 - 4 flower buds seem to be forming at each internode

Yeah, definitely a chinense, that's interesting variety.

I might be interested in swap if you can find anything interesting.

the first flower, size of the flower is approx 4mm



the leaf seems to have very tiny spikes/thorns?

perhaps more like a sparse pubescens...I will try and take a clearer pic later!

Oh, thank you!
Yeah, you'd better don't even try to imagine. But it's so nice to come home and go to the room where plants are :) Turn on art. light and feel oneself almost under summer sun :)
