Blondie Chilli Seeds. The Blondie (C. Baccatum) hails all the way from Sweden where it was created. This variety can be tricky to germinate in our experience, but once it takes is a good grower producing loads of off white elongated pendant shaped pods (some with tinges of purple). These are unusual as they do not turn red when fully ripe (like most chillies), but remain an off white colour. The Blondie has a super citrus/pineapple flavour and aroma. Flavour is clean and citrus with hints of eau de cologne. Pods are very crisp and juicy. Plants are not very big, reaching a height of around 50cm in our experience. Bushy plants with a good crop of these pods. Heat on these is a modest 30,000 - 50,000 SHU.
