The Aji Dulce, AKA the Aji Cachucha, is quite a unique pepper. Native to the Caribbean, this strain came from grower Ed Fraser, with the help of Robert Hadad from Cornell University and friends in Puerto Rico, Ed could identify Line 7, clearly an authentic Puerto Rican Aji Dulce.

Aji Dulce pepper plants are short, reaching about 1.5 ft. tall when they begin bearing fruit. They make for great container plants to grow bountiful 2" long peppers. The Aji Dulce ripens from lime green to red and has a habanero-like appearance that includes wrinkly skin and vibrant colors. These pepper plants yield better when started three weeks earlier than classic (C. annuum) peppers.

Like its shape, the Aji Dulce has the same aroma and flavor as habaneros. Its rich, tropical sweetness, smoky undertones, and mouth-watering zesty flavor make this pepper very addicting! Use Aji Dulce (Line 7) peppers fresh in salads, stir-fries, sofrito, and other Caribbean dishes. If you enjoy pickling, these peppers work great for that!

Aji Dulce for my sofrito

My garden season has not started yet but I grew these last season and they were great. Zone 6A and the yield was phenomenal. Mild heat but can’t tell when I make my Sofrito blend.

Aji Dulce

Second year growing this lovely pepper. Zone 5b I didn’t know how much yield we would get, but was happily surprised with a bountiful harvest of these sweet pretty peppers. So far this year we had a nice germination rate, and the plants are growing well.
