Xcatic Chillies – Anyone growing any?

in General Information

We often get asked for seeds for chillies and we do our best to find a source for our readers, but this one has got us stumped, we have had an enquiry for seeds for the Xcatic Pepper/Chilli. I for one had not heard of this one before, so decided to do some research, I was expecting to find a few seeds suppliers and growers.

After a few hours searching I had come up with very little, except that this was a chilli comes from the Yucatan Peninsula and is a C.Anuum. It is in some ways similar to the Hungarian Hot Wax or Guero pepper except it seems for the all important flavour.

So we are now looking for more information/seeds/pods of this chilli, please let us know if you can help us track it down.

Thanks

Dave

I’m also looking for those seeds. Can’t find them anywhere. I just had a taste of them in Merida and it was absolutely delicious.
