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

Nice, would love to know how they taste. I have pretty much given up on hot peppers now :(
Medium hot as in a habanero or more like a cayenne?

More like a cayenne. You can snack on them raw, or make them into a pepper salsa like they do in Ghana. Tolerable heat, slightly citrusy.
