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.


  1. Found great recipe for a sweet and savoury chili sauce but cannot find a source in the UK for purchasing the main ingredient which is the liebesapfel (sweet chili pepper) pepper. Can you recommend an equivalent which is available here?

    REPLY: I would just search around for any brightly colored sweet peppers. You have many options. — Mike from Chili Pepper Madness.
