Spicy Peruvian Peppers: Rocoto

Rocoto is one of the hottest chili peppers in Peru. The pepper contains the same vitamins as regular peppers—such as lots of Vitamin E—but has the benefit of not provoking delicate stomachs. Rocoto is OK to eat when you have ulcers. It's good for the liver, and is said to accelerate metabolism.

Rocoto is native to Peru, although variety can be found in Chile, but it's the size of a cherry and not spicy.
