The diavolicchio pepper is the most cultivated pepper plant in Calabria. Its species of affiliation is ‘Capsicum annum’. The fruits of the Calabrian diavolicchio chilli have a particular slightly elongated shape that reaches on average between three and six centimeters and ends with a pointed tip, slightly curved inwards.

It presents itself in a particularly branched way and with a not very woody trunk.

The Calabrian diavolicchio chilli has very dense and not particularly large leaves.

During its maturation, initially the Calabrian diavolicchio chilli takes on a green color until it reaches complete ripeness characterized by the assumption of a red color. In Calabria the name ‘Calabrian diavolicchio chilli’ is also added to ‘Diamante’, as well as a town overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea in the province of Cosenza famous for the ‘Accademia del Peperoncino’ and for the ‘chili peppers Festival’.

During the Peperoncino Festival the variety of Calabrian diavolicchio chilli is always used to give life to a competition between chilli gluttons.

The Calabrian diavolicchio chili plant is easy to grow both outdoors but also in closed places such as an apartment. It can be displayed outdoors in larger pots when the temperatures are mild.

This hot Calabrian pepper needs to be exposed directly to the sun, therefore in hot areas, and needs to be irrigated very regularly
