Q:  Dear Dave,

I’m of Honduran descent and I’m trying to find a site that may contain a list of chile peppers that are native to Honduras.  My grandmother recently passed away and I know she used to grow a specific pepper, what she called Mutton peppers (the way I remember them they looked more like Scotch bonnet).  These peppers were quite different and she said they were real Honduran peppers.  My memory fails on their appearance. I do know they were spicy and had a very pleasant aftertaste, almost sweet. Maybe I’ll have to take my research to Honduras one day. šŸ™‚

Thanks,

Sean

 

A: Hello Sean:

www.chileplants.com has a variety called ’Honduras Wild’ā€”just go to their site and do a search.  I don’t know of a site that specifically lists Honduran chiles, sorry.

Best,

Dave
