Madame Jeanette (Capsicum chinense) is a chili pepper originally from Suriname.

The fruits are shaped like small bell peppers but with Habanero-like heat. The peppers ripen to reddish-yellow but they are larger and not symmetrical. When raw, the taste is of a hot burning, with a very tasty flavor. It may be related to the Suriname Red (as this pepper is also known as ‘Suriname Yellow’). Often this pepper is mixed up with the Yellow Adjuma which is more symmetrical and a different plant. (see pictures.)

The plant is very prolific. It grows fairly small and dislikes cool sites. It will grow indoors.
