Korean Gochu pod test

Korean Gochu

Capsicum annuum


The Korean Gochu is a mild heat, flavorable Capsicum annum originating from the Korean peninsula. The plant bears lots of pendulum hanging fruit 3-4 inches long. It is most often used as an ingredient in fermented Kimchi.


This is a pepper I am growing. The seed originally came from a pod that Jesus Rosario sent me.

Amount eaten: whole pod
Heat: <1
Flavor: 7
Burn Profile: mild, overall mouth burn
Effects: None
Cap Cramps:  None


The pod was sweet and very tangy. The heat seemed to be around 1000 Scoville, give or take.
