The pods are large measuring 4 to 6 inches long and 1 to 1 1/2 inches across, have medium thick flesh with a berry flavour and smokey overtones. They mature from green to a deep rich brown in approximately 85 days. Its aromatic taste makes it superb raw in salsas or salads. 1,000-1,500 Scoville units
