Rocotillo pepper (Capsicum baccatum) is a type of chilli pepper that originated in Peru. Unripe rocotillos are green or yellow, but the colour at maturity varies. Common colours are red, orange or brown. Rocotillos are almost spherical in shape, and can be dried easily. They are generally 2.5cm long and around 2.5cm wide. Most rocotillos rate between 1,500 and 2,500 Scoville units.
