Aji Charapita Plants - 2 Live Plants

OUT OF STOCK FOR 2020

Aji Charapitas are tiny, pea-sized peppers, but they’re oh so fiery. These delicious little peppers have sweet, citrus tones and are the same heat level as the Cayenne Pepper and will burn your tongue right away. The Aji Charapita plant grows to about three feet tall and produces hundreds of .25 inch peppers. Maturing from green to yellow, this crunchy, productive pepper can be grown on patios, in greenhouses and houses!

Fun Fact: The Aji Charapita pepper, also known as the Wild Peruvian Chili Pepper, it is sold at very high prices by gourmet chefs around the world. Reports have said that it is the most expensive pepper in the world and sells over $20,000 for a dried kilo!

WARNING: Plants adjust to small, gradual changes in their environment better than sudden shifts, which is what the hardening off process is all about. Just as you get burned when you bare your untanned skin to the sun, leaves of plants started indoors will develop pale, sunburned patches if they are suddenly exposed to too much sun. The story has a happier ending when you introduce seedlings to bright light and sheltered breezes gradually, over a period of one to three weeks.
