Kagura Nanban

神楽南蛮

Late Midseason                       

This unique and little known pepper comes from Yamakoshi-Mushigame region of Niigata Prefecture, Japan.  This pepper has a spicy pungency to it that, like a shishitou pepper, can be hit and miss in its spiciness.

The standard Days to Maturity is, at best, a guess given that weather and the gardener’s own cultural practices vary greatly. I find the following classification to be more informative:


Early less than 65 days               Midseason 65〜80 days               Late 80+ days

Mike Stefancsik shared with me his Hungarian family heirloom pepper.  I only grow a few peppers but was surprised that a plant that grew to less than a foot (30 cm) was able to produce such long peppers- 2 3/4” (7 cm).  The fruit weigh on average 1/4 oz. (8 g).  I am not sure of the Scoville Unit but these are very hot.
