Tepin or Chiltepin are very small round peppers which only have a diameter of 0.6 to 0.8 cm. The peppers are very hot and according to some people, even hotter than the Habanero. The Tepin is called “the mother of all chili peppers”. In Mexico they also grow in the wild. Sometimes they germinate slowly. When the plants are overwintering indoors, the yield often is better than the previous year. The dried red peppers can be chrushed and used for seasoning many dishes. Delicious in soups and stews. In the green stage the chili pepper is very good to make a salsa.
