Kpakpo★★★★o pepper from Ghana
 
Has anyone grown this? Kpakpo s h ito - sorry, the editor blocks part of the name! A small, blocky, medium-hot green pepper that reportedly never turns red. Used for the green pepper sauce that is ubiquitous.

I am currently on the Volta River in Ghana, and will try to find some seed specimens.

Interesting looking. I think they are picked very immature. Some are saying it's a variety of scotch bonnet.

Hope you succeed! My taste buds are jealous you get to enjoy real Waakye, Chichinga and Red Red.


PS Kambuzi germination was outstanding

Scored! Found some kpakpo ★★★★o peppers at this stand in Accra! Thanks to my Ghana colleagues who drove me around looking.

I've never grown it, but I want to see!

Reminds me of this young lady's shop in Nigeria.
