This is a rare Mexican chilli which literally translated means ancient. This chilli is most famous for its use in Mole sauce.  The flavour of these chillies is sweet and fruity with hints of cocoa .When used in cooking, pods are traditionally roasted in a pan to release flavour and add a little roasted aroma to the pods before adding to dishes.

The Scoville heat unit for this variety is : 1 000 to 2 000 SHU

Important to Note.

Chilli peppers can be tricky to germinate and especially so with the rarer super hot varieties patience is needed as they can take up to 40 days to germinate in ideal conditions. We also recommend that a heat pad is used when germinating chillies of the Capsicum chinense species. All of our chillis are grown in isolation to avoid cross pollination. As chillis are rampant cross pollinators it is not uncommon for variances to appear in the fruit as chillis can cross pollinate with fruit from plants a few houses or kilometres away. The only way to ensure with 100% certainty that cross pollination does not occur is to use pollination bags on each flower when the plant starts to bud and before the flowers open.
