A staple in Peruvian cuisines! The Aji Amarillo is Native to South America and is the largest pepper of the Aji pepper family.

Aji Amarillo pepper plants grow to be sturdy, 3 ft, tall plants and are very productive. Pods are longer than other Aji pepper varieties, reaching 4-5" long, and maturing to a bright orange color with thick flesh and shiny, smooth skin.

The Aji Amarillo is BURSTING with an amazingly fruity, almost berry-like flavor. The heat is no joke either, coming in at a mere 30,000-50,000 SHUs. Its 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!

Quick to germinate

Quick to germ but slow to grow. Still only 2-3 inches tall. Delaying outdoor transplant until plants are better established.

Great Plants

These seeds germinated very fast and now I have very full and healthy plants. Great seeds. Great Peppers.
