An early hot variety from Calabria. A cherry chilli pepper with round, red fruit about 5cm in diameter. A quite hot pepper that was previously called “Satan’s kiss”.

Like all peppers start off from Spring in a protected area sowing them 1cm in depth. They must have light and heat at this stage. Transplant outside after the last frosts.
