A vibrant orange, medium to hot chilli known as ‘Shipkas’ in their Bulgarian home (although there’s debate over whether it originated in Hungry first). This heirloom has a fruitiness to accompany the heat. A thicker fleshed chilli that is super crunchy & is used fresh, roasted, pickled or in chutneys. While it has some cold tolerance in cooler areas it’s best sown in a sheltered position. 15 seeds.
