When it has reached its full maturity, the biquinho chilli takes on a yellow colour with a shape that is distinctive, resembling a comma or a raindrop. The Biquinho Yellow Chilli is a landrace variety of the Capsicum chinense species that was developed in South America and has a distinctive appearance. This plant is known as a "Landrace," which indicates that it has been grown in a particular area for an extended period of time, allowing it to become accustomed to the environmental conditions of that area. The Biquinho Yellow Chilli, which is indigenous to Brazil, has become an essential component of the traditional cuisine of that country.
The word "biquinho" comes from the Portuguese language and literally translates to "little beak." This gives an accurate description of the shape of the pod, which resembles the beak of a small bird when it is placed among the foliage of the plant. There are a few different names for the Biquinho Yellow Chilli, including chupetinho, pimenta de bico, and pimenta biquinho. The peppers are small enough to bite into, and they have a distinct smokiness in addition to a delicious and melon-like sweetness. It is a regular habit to consume these chilies pickled, and their level of heat is typically relatively muted, particularly for a variation of Capsicum chinense.

Wow what an absolute delight this company is. Their customer service is superb - they kindly arranged for me to order this box and hold back delivery until we knew the actual moving in date. And it arrived not only on time but full of love with beautiful planet friendly packaging. How many gifts can be buy where there is joy in the purchasing, the receiving AND in the anticipation for when the flowers actually appear.
I'm so thrilled I'm purchasing for myself. :-)
Beautifully presented!! Good number of seeds per packet and a lovely selection of flowers !
It was estimated to arrive, a bit too late , as we were going away and wanted to give it to my sister in law, before we went.. a quick E mail to the seller, and it was dispatched immediately and arrived in time… excellent!!
I'm obsessed with bishybarnabeescottagegarden seeds, it's like being a kid in a candy store , I love varieties of the flower selection, I always order the seed boxes because they are great value for money and there's always a cute surprise every time I open the box , love the presentation and iv planted so many seed this month so impatiently waiting for next spring 🤭
From ordering, receiving my gorgeously wrapped box, opening to reveal copper coloured shiny tins with beautiful labels. To smelling the fantastic fragrance, I was overwhelmed with the seamless flow of this purchase. Highly recommended and I’ll definitely try out more flavours.
Ordered these as I saw one growing wild in my garden and thought was lovely. Seeds arrived very promptly, part of a small batch of various seeds, along with a free gift which was very much appreciated. Will certainly buy again and am looking forward to seeing the plants next year.
Seeds sown directly outdoors last summer, all germinated and formed lovely silvery rosettes, and half have now also thrown up flower stalks and are producing stunning vivid pink flowers. I’m hopeful that the other half may do the same next summer. Great seeds, well packaged, excellent instructions - many thanks!
I've never grown Hesperis (sweet rocket) until this year, but Melanie's seeds were so successful and prolific, that I now have beautiful flowers wafting their amazing aroma around my garden...plus our honey bees are so happy 🐝 In fact lots of pollinators are visiting!
