A beautiful-looking strain from Peru, Aji Ayuyo peppers look like tiny jewels sprouting off the plant’s bright green foliage. Another Aji pepper variety, they taste just as amazing as they look, and are used for their mildly sweet flavors in both fresh and cooked foods.

Aji Ayuyo plants can grow in containers up to 2 ft. tall, but they can reach higher than 4 ft. if planted directly into the ground. These bushy pepper plants grow many vines, so providing the right support is crucial for peppers to bloom. Fruits will grow up to 2” long and look like elongated jellybeans with nice, smooth skin. Watch as Aji Ayuyo peppers change many colors through their maturity progression: starting green, then deep purple, to creamy purple, then to an iridescent orange, and finally to bright red.

With a wine grape flavor – very juicy, sweet, and fruity – and a mild heat level, this pepper adds a certain tanginess to your food. Add some fruity flavor to fresh salsa and sauce. The medium-thick walls of Aji Ayuyo peppers make them great for drying into seasoning used for soups and stews.
