Our Hot Sauce is made with natural Rocoto and our recipe is the best secret of our kitchen.
Capsicum pubescens is a species of the genus Capsicum (pepper), known as rukutu, ruqutu, hispanicized rocoto which is found primarily in Central and South America. It is known only in cultivation. Of all the domesticated species of peppers, this is the least widespread and systematically furthest away from all others. It is reproductively isolated from other species of the genus Capsicum. A very notable feature of this species is its ability to withstand cooler temperatures than other cultivated pepper plants, but cannot withstand frost.
