The Santaka Pepper is a hot chile that originates from Japan. Also know as ‘Asian Hot’, this mirasol type chile plant (meaning the fruits point towards the sun), is rather small in size, cone-shaped, measuring about two inches in length and up to an inch in width at maturity. It has a tapered teardrop shape.  At harvest time, the skin of the fruit is thin and wrinkled. Peppers mature from green to red approximately 70 days after transplanting. The plant produces white flowers.
