Puya chiles produce a quick medium heat at first - double that of the guajillo - and then a delicious fruitiness for a unique eating experience. The thin-skinned peppers grow to 5" long and 3/4" wide and mature from green to red. The 30" tall plants produces good yields of this pepper that dries easily after harvest.
Puya has a wonderful flavor that is fruity with licorice and cherry undertones.
