Aji Cristal Peppers are native to Chile and are widely used in many Mexican cuisines. Known for its spicy citrus flavor, the Aji Cristal is a must-have versatile option that you’ll want to grow in your garden.

These pepper plants reach 4 ft. tall and are incredibly prolific! Expect to have LOTS of fruits grow on these plants, with the possible need to stake them for extra support. Aji Cristal peppers ripen from light green to a reddish-orange color. These peppers can be harvested at any stage; the longer they ripen, the more heat they’ll have.

Use green Aji Cristal peppers for an added medium hot pepper taste in fresh foods, soups, or pickling. Orange peppers can spice up your dishes and add a bit of spicy zest to salsas, sauces, and even pepper flakes and chili powders!

Didn't germinate

Probably my fault but those and the Naga Vipers didnt sprout.
Pretty much everything else (25 species) did

A customer service representative will be reaching out to you directly so we can see what happened with these and why they didn't sprout. We look forward to working with you and providing resolution!

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
