opit is growing a lot of chilli peppers this year, and we’ve got to give some of them away.

The plants have been growing fast, we had to replant them twice already and their growing room stinks like a Ballardian swamp.

There are simply too many of them, so we’re giving at least 2-3 plants of each variety away. Get in touch (opit(a) technarium.lt) if you’d like some.

Here’s the list of the varieties:

Jalapeño early – matures 1-2 weeks earlier than normal jalapeños. 2500 ~ 8000 Scoville units.
Jalapeño purple – dark purple jalapeño pepper, sweeter, 2500 ~ 8000 Scoville units.
 Jalapeno mild – mild green/red jalapeño, 1,000 to 1,500 on Scoville heat scale.
Costa Rica (klastūnas) – a very spicy chilli sprouted from a fruit a friend smuggled from Costa Rica. A red chilli with very sneaky taste – some areas of the fruit are sweet but the next bite will make you jump.
Costa Rica (round) – a round, strawberry-sized chilli sprouted from a fruit a friend smuggled from Costa Rica. Hot.
Costa Rica (small, elongated) – tiny hot chillies sprouted from a fruit a friend smuggled from Costa Rica.

Pimiento de Padrón – a lovely sort of small green peppers opit brought from Spain. Small, mild, but an occasional one can be quite hot. Tastes great when fried in olive oil and tossed with coarse salt. I’ve got lots of these available.
Bulgarian Carrot
– long, green-to-orange heirloom variety chillies. 12.000 ~ 30.000 Scoville units.
Cherry Sweetsmall, sweet paprikas.

Corno di Torro rosso – large, sweet, red Italian paprika peppers.
Penis chilli – ‘causes amusement’. Hot, 10,000-23,000 Scoville units.

Pimiento de Piquillo – sweet, small Spanish peppers, great tapas material.
Guajillo Mirasol – classical Mexican chillies. 2,500 to 5,000 on the Scoville scale.
Shishitō – mild, long Japanese chillies with occasional hot ones. Picked while green.
Poblano – mild, classic Mexican chilli peppers. Used in mole sauces, or grilled. Recommended by a friend from Sofa de Pancho restaurant.
White Habanero – rare Peruvian white chillies. Very hot (> 300 000 on Scoville scale).
