The Fidalgo Roxa is an extremely rare chilli which originates from Brazil and shares many similarities with the Cheiro Roxa chilli (Roxa means 'purple' in Portuguese).
The pods are around 2.5cm in diameter and start a dark purple, before maturing to more of a pink hue. The plants can grow quite tall, up to around 1m high and have the most amazing dark purple and green leaves.
We found they have a really distinctive floral capsicum chinense aroma when cut open. These chillies are rated around 50,000-100,000sHU so be careful when handling them.
Plant Care Tips
Sow a few seeds into a tray from late January to May and cover lightly with seed compost. Either use a heated propagator or pop the seed tray into an enclosed plastic bag and seal and place it on a windowsill. Once the seedling has produced two true leaves (second set of leaves) they can be transplanted into individual pots. Try and maintain around 20-25 degrees while young plants.
As the plant grows, transplant it into as large a pot as possible, determining the plant's size. Once the plant has flowered and has started to produce small chillies, it will benefit from a feed of either comfrey tea or tomato feed. Chillies dislike irregular watering as this will sometimes cause blossom end rot (the base of the chilli/pepper rots)
