Cabe Keriting Chilli Seeds. Literally translated is (Chilli Curly). Also known as Cabe Merah (Chilli Red). Particularly fond of this little one. This Capsicum Annuum is a good grower. This cultivar loves the sun and warmth and is a no fuss grower. Cabe Keriting will grow to about 60cm in height. It has long slender leaves and quite a compact bushy appearance. This is a really awesome producer, producing plenty of trailing serpent like chillies that hang from the plant but are twisted and contorted like writhing snakes. It is actually very impressive to see, almost sculptural. This is definitely a looker and a producer. Capable of producing multiple flushes of chillies in a season. If you are looking for a plant that is a great producer, this is definitely a contender. Pods turn from dark green to bright red and it's a fairly quick grower too. The proof in the pudding is laways in the pods... and these little pods are super fine! Producing a lovely honest peppery brun that starts slow but keeps on giving. Up there with the really tasty annuum chillies. It's got a fair heat too... putting it up there with other Thai/cayenne chillies. Great used fresh or dried. these pods are thin skinned, so they dry really well and produce a cracking chilli powder. All round a really great little plant that is well worth it's place in a chilli patch.
