I didn't really want to make another topic on this pepper, but I want to put it in the right place in my collection. I wrote it down as a Frutescens, but I see people refer to it as a Chinense too. Which is it?

 

Ps. I got some serious deja-vu going on asking this question, but I searched the whole forum and I can't find the answer.


It's a little chilly.

lol.

 

I did a Google search because, well, just because.

 

I found one site that said Chinense, and another that said Frutescens.

 

So I still don't know.

Yeah, that's exactly why I'm confused.

Imagine a death row inmate requesting a pound of Aji Charapita peppers for his last meal.
