Moshi Chili Pepper

Moshi Chili Pepper Moshi Chili Pepper

The Moshi Chili Pepper originates from Tanzania, Africa. It is named for the village of Moshi, located at the base of Mount Kiliminjaro. It is a very rare but productive hot pepper variety, yielding many peppers. The chili plants grow on average between 3-4 feet in height. The peppers ripen from green to red and typically reach two inches in length with a pointed end. This variety made its way to the United States via an exotic seed collector.

My personal experience is that it has a good heat level with a thin pepper wall. I would equate them to Thai chilies or maybe a cayenne in overall heat and flavor. I used four of them in a dish with 2 serrano peppers and that really lit up my tongue!
