The species named, C. Pubescens, means hairy. The hairiness of the leaves, along with the black seeds, distinguish this species from others. Known as the 'Manzano' Orange, meaning apple due the shape of the fruit. Its origin lies in the Andes region of Peru. The chillies themselves are very pungent and measure in size 65mm long and 40mm wide and resemble miniature bell peppers, maturing in colour from green to orange. These plants are very resistant to low temperatures. They grow into four-meter woody plants relatively quickly, and live up to 15 years.
