Biquinho (Capsicum chinense) also known as Chupetinho, Pimenta de Bico or Chupetinha. Hailing from the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, Pimenta Biquinho peppers are round and little with a distinctive, tapered point or tail that resembles a birds beak. They can be either a brilliant scarlet-red or sunshine-yellow.
A beautiful looking plant with heaps of drop shaped “little beak” pepper pods makes a great ornamental plant. The plant grows to about 20 inches tall in a pot with pepper filled cascading branches.
TASTE: A mild heat level. Sweet and fruity with a habanero like flavor.
CULINARY USE: The most common way that piquinho peppers are eaten in Brazil is when they’ve been pickled in a vinegar solution and served as a garnish or as an appetizer with drinks.
