I’ve been researching on the web the chiltepin pepper, and I get various conflicting information regarding this pepper. Could you clarify?
-What is the species for this pepper (I’ve seen both annum and frutescens applied)
-What is the shape of this pepper? (Have seen both the pointed and round types)
We are doing test plots here in
A: Hello Phillip:
The species is annuum. The shape is spherical. When pointed, this usually indicates a piquin rather than a chiltepin.
