Rocoto Peppers
 

The rocoto is somewhat unknown in North America as it is not grown commercially in the U.S. It is an exotic looking chili with long, hairy stems, purple flowers, and jet-black seeds. It is grown in South America.

It grows at a high altitude of between 3,500 to 6,000 feet and requires a cool climate. Fruit is very fleshy and seed core is quite separate from the flesh, rather like a small, pungent, delicious bell pepper.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is green to golden yellow, orange or red. Rocoto peppers are round or pear-shaped.

Some people think they are hotter than Habaneros due to the unique mix of capsaicins.
