Guam's Boonie Pepper
These pepper are called Boonie Peppers. They are the local pepper that grow here on Guam. The peppers in the picture above are picked from my next door neighbor's backyard.
They are HOT! No, I have not tried them yet. What do I put them in? I dont know.
But here are some facts about these peppers here on this wonderful tropical island of Guam that I can call home.
GUAM BOONIES - very hot; Pequin/Piquin Type; 1 to 1.25 inches long by 0.5 to 0.75 inches wide; thin flesh; matures from medium green to orange to red; upright pods; green leaves; 36 to 42 inches tall; Very Late Season; Uses: Drying; from Guam; C.chinese.
They are extremely hot and definitely require gloves whilst cutting. They got plenty of heat but zero flavor.
Anyone up for a taste?
