Rocoto in general: Are you ready for this amazing black seeded hot pepper from South America.  This hardy pepper, also known a tree chili has purple flowers, fury green leaves, spicy red fruits the size of an apple and black seeds.  Though the pepper cant withstand a frost, it can handle very cool climates and therefore will grow year after year in USDA Zone 9-11 (some say 8 but would need micro-climate or protection).  Amazing addition to your food forest, this pepper has  huge foot print and after 2 years it can turn into a huge sprawling bush.  Peppers mature in winter usually and in warmer climates in fall.
