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!
