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?....

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
