Calapeño Thunder Chilli Seeds. This is our very own hybrid. This is a cross between a Californian Wonder (Yellow Pepper) and a Jalapeño (Red). Hence the name "Calapeño Thunder". Tall plants reaching about 1.2/1.5m. Large pods that look more like giant Jalapeño's. Pods change from green to red and are also ±10,000 SHU. What we like about these is the heat and flavour are just perfect. Crunchy, juicy, hot and sweet... we just loved these!
This is the third year that this hybrid has come into our hands. So we anticipate that these seeds are not stable. But if you are interested, these seeds are definately worth a try! Anticipate colour and phenotype variations on this variety.
