Santaka Japanese Pepper
Capsicum annuum 'Santaka'
Uses: Culinary/Medicinal Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
When this pepper ripens in Tochigi Prefecture, about two hours north of Tokyo, the fields turn a spectacular fiery red. The cone-shaped fruits, about 5cm (2") long, point prominently upward in clusters that locals call "three hawk talons". The ornamental effect alone makes it a great addition to the garden, and yet it is also excellent for sauces, chutneys, salsas, stir-fries and curries. It has an intense but uncomoplicated heat that blends well with other bold ingredients such as cilantro, garlic and lemongrass. The fruits can be strung together to create beautiful wreaths that provide peppers as needed. Heat: 30,000 Scoville units.
