The Aji Charapita pepper, also known as the Wild Peruvian Chili Pepper, is a tiny pepper with blazing heat! These peppers are sold at very high prices to gourmet chefs around the world. Reports have said that it's the most expensive pepper in the world, selling for over $20,000 for a dried kilo!

Aji Charapita plants grow to about 3 ft. tall and produce hundreds of .25" peppers. Maturing from green to yellow, this crunchy, productive pepper can be grown on patios, in greenhouses, and in houses!

These delicious little Aji peppers have sweet, citrusy tones and are the same heat level as a Cayenne Pepper and will burn your tongue right away. This kind of heat makes the Aji Charapita great for drying and used for hot sauce and salsa!

An amazing pepper!

I strongly recommend growing Aji Charapita peppers,they are so different from the usual peppers and taste amazingly fruity and floral, whilst packing a good punch of heat. If you’re looking for something different to try, then look no further.
