Liebesapfel Sweet Chili Pepper
What is the Liebesapfel Chili Pepper
The Liebesapfel chili pepper is a sweet, thick fleshed chili pepper that typically grows very early and is a very productive pepper. The name literally translates from German to “Love Apple”, apparent by the shape of the pepper. It looks like a cross between an apple and a tiny pumpkin. It is a type of pimento and was developed by a small seed company in Germany.
The fruits are gorgeous to behold, ribbed, round and flattened like little pumpkins. They look a bit like ribbed pimento peppers. They ripen from green to brown and to red. Try them for stuffing.
