PI 152225 - Miscucho colorado (C.chinense)

PI152225 - Miscucho colorado from Germplasm Resources Information Network (GRIN) dell'United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
As the acronim PI denote, this is a plant from seeds of USDA, the US seeds bank.
It's a variety from Peru'.
While "colorado" means red in Spanish, I can't find a translation for the word miscucho
I choose it among all the varieties available on the seed bank, because I wish to verify if it's in some way linked with Cajamarca; now I'm almost sure it's an ancestral form of that beautiful variety
Even if the whole plant looks like a C.chinense, flowers are quite strange and are intermediate between annuum and chinense.
Maybe it's a cross between the two species, as Cajamarca itself seems to be.
Plant grow up to 1 m and produces a fairly good number of pods maturing from light green to bright red, with nice purple streaks.
