My original plant of "Filipino Mexican Tree Pepper" died at eight years old in the 2010 freeze. Years ago Allen Boatman identified it as a form of Capsicum frustescens, truly perennial in south Tampa. I thought I'd lost it but two years ago found some old pods in a labelled nice to have multiple specimens plus to have shared a few! Great heat and flavor comparable to a good Thai hot pepper. Allen and I chose the study name based on what we learned of its history. In about a month I should have some ripe pods to share with people for seeds.
