Description (''C. pubescens'') It is a perennial peppe (''C. pubescens'') It is a perennial pepper that is rather cold and rain tolerant. Plants grow to 6', can overwinter in mild climates and live for many years. Plants do not like heat, and should be shaded in hotter climates. Leaves and steams are hairy, and not glossy as other pepper species. Purple blossoms are small and so pretty. Unusual black seeds that may not germinate very well, even if they are very fresh. It does not self-pollinate, so you need to grow at least 3-6 plants to ensure good cross-pollination. Produces the most in its 2nd or 3rd year, so it is best to overwinter. In our area, plants start blooming in early August in the first year, but set very few fruits. Red bell-shaped pods are smooth and deliciously hot. haped pods are smooth and deliciously hot.
