Great little peppers!

Bought seeds in late fall 2021 for the 2022 growing season and writing review near end of 2022 season. Germination rate was good. I only planted 3 seeds and all grew (kept 2 plants and gave one away). Planted both plants near each other in a slightly raised (mostly in ground) bed with about 6 or so hours of sun per day. They were some of the most productive peppers I grew this year! Both plants did well, grew about 3 feet tall and yielded hundreds of peppers (and still going)! Peppers range from about 1.5 to 2.5 inches long. They did not seem to take too long to ripen to a brilliant yellow color. They are appropriately categorized as a medium heat seed and I would say are slightly spicier than my cayennes. They have a somewhat floral flavor. We have used them in pico, have made hot sauce (pineapple/mango) and dried to be made into powder. Overall, very pleased with these and will be growing them again next year.

Off to a great start in 2022 with Aji Gold!

So far I’ve had fantastic success with the Aji Gold seeds, a nearly 80% germination rate and the batch appears true to type based on foliage and flowers. We’ll know more in a few weeks when the pods mature!

Good for patio containers, very productive

I grew these in two-gallon pots and they were still very productive, I got 20-50 peppers from each plant even though they were barely a foot tall. They don't have very much flavour raw, but I made them into chili powder and it came out very flavourful and spicy. I'd say they're 30,000-90,000 scovilles. They take a while to ripen.
