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.

When growing an Aji Dulce, they reach 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!

So far so good

I received about 12 seeds in my package. Ten of those sprouted. Now the rest is up to me. Hopefully, I’m able to grow them until they bare fruit

  • 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.
