A moderately hot, delicious Aji from Peru’s northern coastal valleys. Large pods with thick flesh makes this variety one of the best for culinary uses. Slightly sweet, fruity flavor. These beautiful peppers are typically served fresh as side dishes with seafood in Peru. The plant can get large but easy to grow. Keep it as a compact plant easily with scissors as it grows fast. These pods are GREAT for stuffing too!
Gives great yields. Tolerates more cold climates. Easy to overwinter too.

Challenge: 1 (very easy to grow)
