Has anyone out there ever come across the Naga Morich Salmon?
I ran across this variety last year at my local nursery here in Italy, but have not been able to find much information other than on the website of the supplier - www.ortomio.it …If anybody has any information to share about this variety it would be much appreciated, I've been wondering if the grower just threw the name together to try and capitalize on "Naga-mania", or if this pepper is actually derived from the Naga Morich.
Here are a few shots of peppers growing on the plant last summer -
Here you can see the salmon color starting to develop as the pepper ripened -
Here's a shot of how a couple peppers look after coming out of the freezer. The colors aren't quite true, though you can see the Salmon color pretty well, and the purple blush that stayed on some of them. Bottle cap for scale -
The peppers look very similar to the Peach Wasp, but shorter.
And finally, the label that came with the plant when purchased. Notice the front side of the card says Naga Salmon while the back says Naga Morich Salmon.
