Capsicum cardenasii (Ulupica)
The Ulupica grows wild in Bolivia and Peru and is thought to be the origin progenitor of all Capsicums. The Ulupica is closely related to the Rocoto but grows to only 1/2 in size. Like the Rocoto, the Ulupica has purple flowers but only a slightly pubescent.
In 2001 I received seeds for c. cardenasii. Although a bit late to grow this season, I plan to grow some plants next year.
