Goat's weed is a long lived variety of chilli, which overwinters well. The pods grow erect on the plant 6cm (2½in) long by 1cm (⅜in)[3] and ripen from green to black to a fluorescent red. The flavour is spicey without being fruity. Its foliage is tight, and bears dark and mid olive green leaves with a pubescens-like silver fuzz on the stems and the under leaf. Its appearance is striking, particularly as the green, black and red fruit are present together all year round. Very heavy producer. Should grow up to four foot high, with a two foot width.[4]
