An Italian variety producing medium hot fruit that vary from round to slightly cone-shaped and average a respectable 2.7cm in diameter. The fruit grow upright on the plant, and turn from green to red as they mature. They are thick-fleshed and an ideal chilli for stuffing.
The tidy, medium-tall plants display a shrubby, upright growth habit. They grow well in pots as small as 3 litres in volume, though they need some support to stay upright.
Hot Cherry is called Ciliegia Piccante in Italy
