Organic Naso di Cane pepper
The Naso di Cane hot pepper is a variety of Capiscum annuum and is native to Italy, particularly Calabria: it is here that it is widely used, especially in the production of sausages such as ‘nduja. The fruit, with its conical, rounded shape reminiscent of a dog’s nose, is rich in flesh and not very spicy, usually settling between 10,000 and 20,000 SHU on the Scoville scale. This is why it is versatile and loved even by those who are not used to intense flavours.
How can I grow it?
The organic Naso di Cane plant is rather short and compact, so it grows very well especially in pots. Start by germinating the seeds: place them well apart in a container on moistened paper towels and wait for the sprouts to emerge. Then move them gently into well-drained soil and water them sparingly and often, taking care not to create water stagnation.
After about 100 days, your organic Naso di Cane chillies will take on a bright red colour, at which point you can harvest them and enjoy them in any way you like.
How can I eat it?
The organic Naso di Cane chilli is characterised by its fruity and not too spicy taste. With its smooth texture and abundant flesh, it is excellent for making sauces and intensifying the flavour of your hot and cold dishes.
We recommend wearing gloves when handling the chillies to avoid skin irritation.
Store the seeds in a cool, ventilated place with a temperature between 8° and 20° C, protected from weather, changes in humidity and sunlight.
