it's a chilli pepper of some description carol.all i know is that it said "grown in spain" & "medium heat"on the packet.consensus amongst cws,steve k & one or two others on the "today's dinner" thread is that it is most likely a cayenne pepper.tell you what tho' carol,tesco lied about the heat.....hotter than the hobs of hell they are(and i can take heat)but damn tasty.that's why i left it whole.tagines are not usually "hot" dishes.if i'd chopped it up,thus exposing the membrane inside the chilli & the seeds(those two parts are where most of the heat is)it woulda blown me bleedin' socks off,i can tell ya
