Earbob is a chilli pepper variety from the Capsicum baccatum species. It is an erect, yet branching plant, which produces rounded pods which ripened from green to bronze and then to red approximately 60 days after transplanting. The pods are medium-thick fleshed, sweet to taste with the usual Baccatum fruity and aroma, with little heat. On the downside this plant is a relatively low producer and has a very long season.[3]
