This long slender pepper is from India.
It is about finger length thus it's other name of finger hot pepper.
Makes excellent dried pepper flakes or powder. Our most popular powder at the farmers market. Dries easily because they are so skinny and the flesh is thin.
Not a pepper for those with cool nights unless you have a greenhouse or hot southern window and plant it in a large pot. They do extremely well in pots and we have some plants that are still bearing in the greenhouse that are 2 years old! In fact, they withstood many nights as low as 28 degrees F and had no injury in our greenhouse. Yes, we were pleasantly surprised. We planted in March in the greenhouse and harvested around Christmas! So you have to have some patience, but the flavor is worth the wait.
Those in the hot southern portions of the USA, zones 8+ (and nights with 70 degree plus) should have no problem getting this to produce before your first freeze outside in the garden.
