Originally from Suriname.

Madame Jeanette pepper

Madame Jeanette (Capsicum chinense) is a chili pepper originally from Suriname.

The fruits are shaped like small bell peppers but with Habanero-like heat. The peppers ripen to reddish-yellow but they are larger and more symmetrical than Habaneros. When raw, the taste is of a hot burning, without any sweetness or fruitiness. It may be related to the Suriname Red (as this pepper is also known as 'Suriname Yellow').

The plant is very prolific. It grows fairly small and dislikes cool sites. It will grow indoors.
