Mareko Fana is a medium-heat pepper that is highly prized in Ethiopian cuisine. The peppers form the backbone of the traditional Ethiopian "Berbere" spice. They are also very popular with a number of restaurants in the Bay Area.
Mareko Fana plants are very productive. They will produce at about 85 days after transplan, if the original transplants are over 1 ft tall and healthy.
The peppers are mostly brown, and we select for brown fruits each harvest, but there is an occasional plant bearing red peppers. This pepper is a land race and we are not pushing it to strict genetic uniformity. Fruits are mostly thick-fleshed, but some are thinner.
The land-race was sourced by our collaborator, Menkir Tamrat
