Also nicknamed Lady’s Little Finger, the Dedo de Moca is a staple in Brazilian cuisine. It has a wonderful flavor that is perfect to use fresh, cooked, or dried, and you’ll be glad to have this growing in your garden.

The Dedo de Moca pepper plant will grow to be tall and gangly that produce 2-3" long pepper pods. This is a plant that is super easy to grow, and its shape is identical to the Lemon Drop pepper. Watch these pods ripen from green to red color when it's time to harvest.

You can expect medium heat around 10,000-15,000 SHUs with a fruity, smoky flavor from this South American pepper.  With its medium heat, it's not a very hot pepper, but the Dedo de Moca will have a punchy, stingy heat that hits all over your mouth and lingers for a while. Use the Dedo de Moca pepper to make a sauce or powder, or to use in rice, stew, chili, and curry! When in its dried format, it’s known in Brazil as Pimenta-Calabresa.

They DO NOT change colors

These might be? Dedo de mochas? I bought from you but they DO NOT change colors, they go from green to red period.......I bought them because of the color change description, thought they would look good for my video series I did this summer, but again I'm let down, poor me huh?, giving you my hard earned money and being let down by a wrong description again, I probably deserve it huh?....
