FUN FACT: ALL Capsicum baccatum species have fuzzy leaves!
The Aji Amarillo is a bright orange, thick-fleshed pepper that is bursting with flavor. The heat is no joke either, coming in at a mere 30,000 - 50,000 Scoville Heat Units. It's most common appearance in Peruvian culture is in the form of a paste, but can be found used in a handful of Spanish dishes! Such a fantastic pepper and very versatile!
