chinense Nai miris - Sri Lankan chilli ?

Hi Guy's

Anyone know anything about this variety ? I've seen it described as a Scotch bonnet but also as cobra or snake chilli which would suggest a type of Naga ?

I can't find any mention of how many shu or anything about flavour ?

Be interested to find more information

Hi Guy's

My little Nai miris are growing nicely found loads of videos on you tube about them sadly all in Sri Lankan :think:

Funny looking chilies from what I've seen they sort of look like a upside down traditional scotch bonnet !
Anyway very pretty little plants seem to have reddish vains and trunk.


I'd still like to know more about them shu ? Productivity ?

Hi Guy's

My very late sown Nai Miris has a few pod's I still haven't managed to find out much about these...........

I don't know if there a scotch bonnet variety new to Sri Lanka or an old variety grown in Sri Lanka for generations ?

Either way I'm expecting them to ripen to Red 🙂
