Aribibi Gusano or Caterpillar chili is a very cool-looking and rare little plant from Bolivia. Gusano means “Worm” in Spanish, so that’s where they get the name, as they look like a little worm or caterpillar, very very cool. Beautiful-looking plant. It grows to around 60 cm in a pot and has sort of an umbrella shape. An amazing producer of hundreds of pods. The pods are about 4-5 cm long, and 1 cm wide and look like a Caterpillar with their wrinkles. Looks spectacular.
Sow seeds indoors ¼” deep. Peppers germinate best in warm soil, so gentle bottom heat may be helpful until seedlings emerge. Wait to transplant outdoors until the soil is warm.
