Biquinho Yellow Pepper (55 Days)

The Brazilian pepper, ‘bee-kee-nyo’, which means ‘little beak’, are 1” pointed, yellow peppers. Marginally tart with a tiny bit of heat, they are more often than not pickled in vinegar but can be eaten raw or cooked. Pop them into your mouth for a burst of almost fruity tang with a delightful crunch.

20 seeds  


Caspsicum chinense

Germination: 10-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 75-85ºF. Cooler soil temperatures slow germination time.

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼” deep

Starting Indoors:  8-10 weeks before the last frost. Sow in flats/cells/pots. Provide 75-85ºF soil temperatures. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water-soluble fertilizer (diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement). Transplant seedlings 18-24” apart after the last frost.

Sowing Outdoors: Not recommended, especially in northern areas

How much does a packet plant: 20-25 foot single row  

Harvest: Use a sharp instrument to cut the peppers from the plant. Pick the first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some peppers on the plant to mature so they can change color and sweeten up.

Tips: Pinch off early flowers or tiny fruit on any seedlings before placing them in the ground. Plant in fertile soil, amend with compost if needed. It helps to use row cover early in the season, giving the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Side dress when flowers begin to form.

Very Prolific

All the fruitiness of habaneros but without the heat. Grows like a hab in that it is a short very wide plant. The peppers look like little chinese lanterns and they are going wild here. South shore of Lake Erie.

Rare Pepper, Hard to Find

Actually, I look forward to buying these rare seeds from you for the next season. The current supply I have was so hard to get. My husband pickles them for a number of gourmet recipes. You can certainly buy them pickled online, but they are expensive. Please get the red variety, too. The red variety is actually more used in recipes. Adding the tiny Brazilian starfish would be a great addition, too. Please add more: Don't discontinue. Your price here is excellent. Please note that some competitive seed houses are now offering free shipping on seed packets. That's good business.


Beautiful pepper plants

This took a while to grow, but the pepper plant was nice. The plant itself was ***** and has a cone shaped canopy. The shape looks like a martini glass. The fruit tasted mildly bitter and then a tiny hint of heat. I highly recommend these.
