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.

Beautifully box of biennial seeds. I haven’t sown them yet but I’m looking forward to doing so. Delivered promptly and the packaging is all recyclable and so prettily presented with two cute strawflowers inside. Thank you
Ordered a couple of chilli varieties that I hadn’t found anywhere else. They arrived within just a couple of days (I’m in Kent) and included an extra package of seeds as a “thank you” which I thought was such a lovely touch, thank you! Very excited to get growing 😊
From the moment the cute seed box arrives at your door, until the seedling pop up to say hello...they never disappoint. I've purchased a few different boxes of seeds and know they'll not be my last! Thank you 🐞🌸
I already have baby craspedia seedlings and can't wait to see them grow. I bought a couple of craspedia plants last year and they produce the most lovely yellow pom poms. They look great dotted in three's around the house and I also use them when I make dried wreaths.
This was gifted to my mum for her birthday and she loves it. You've got everything you need for flower pressing, including all instructions.
Nicely packaged and fast delivery
One of our favourites in the range. Balanced subtle tones, good burn time and will definitely buy again. Matt

Top quality seeds and so beautifully presented - I bought them for myself but it was like receiving a gorgeous gift!
Great service, prompt delivery and beautifully packaged. It was for a gift so not tried them but they look lovely.
I am happy to give a 5 star review for Bishy Barnabee’s Cottage Garden Flower and Herb Box.
I loved receiving the beautiful package of seeds, with some dried flowers enclosed and not an ounce of plastic in sight!
All thoughtfully eco friendly wrapped.
The delivery was super quick and I’m working my way through sewing the seeds, on the monthly instructions contained on each packet.
I think any of the seed boxes would make a beautiful gift or why not treat yourself!
I’ll certainly be buying more as I expand my cut flower garden 🌸🐞
Another beautifully presented gift box of seeds delivered quickly and professionally presented. I bought as a gift for a friend who was delighted. I will definitely be back again.
I was so pleased to receive this box of seeds, beautifully presented with a lovely little dried flower to add a special touch, thank you, can’t wait to get started on sowing them .
I can’t rate these seeds highly enough! Germination was super fast and baby plants are lovely and strong. Looking forward to a flower filled 2023 , and will definitely be ordering lots more goodies from Bbcg x
