Are you in a climate with a shorter growing season? Are you crazy anxious each year for your hot peppers to grow? If you answered yes to either question, then you just have to try the Aji Rico. The plant is a BIG producer, with an average yield of around 120 peppers. The Aji Rico pepper grows to about three to four inches and can be eaten at any stage. It ripens from green to red and can be harvested green at around the 55-day mark. “Aji” means chili in South America, and these peppers provide a citrusy, juicy, and crunchy red bell pepper flavor that is a perfect addition to any dish. They are even great raw! The narrow, conical Aji Rico creates a medium heat burn that stays on your tongue. Grab yours today and you’ll be enjoying them in no time!

Pleasant lake peppers

Been growing aji Rico peppers for several years now. Taste great, hardy plants that produce a lot of fruits. If you make salsa, hot sauce or like eating fresh peppers but don’t want alot of heat, aji Rico’s are hard to beat !

Nice mildly spicy pepper

Bought seeds late Fall 2021 for 2022 growing season. Only planted 3 seeds, all grew (kept 2, gave one away). Plants grew well in a raised bed. Reached about 3 feet tall and produced about 40-50 peppers each. Fruits were 2-3 inches long. Peppers were very mildly spicy (little less than my jalapeños) and have flavor that reminded me of red bell pepper.

Hardy peppers!

So far my seedlings had a 100% germination rate. Last night I forgot to bring them inside. It dropped from 50 to 32 degrees and none of them died! I was quite impressed!

My Aji Rico seedlings practically jumped out of their seeds in a week! No soaking the seeds. Just right into their pots and boom! 100% germination! You can’t ask for better than that!

Pretty good seeds - I had 2 out of 6 that failed t germinate and had to re-sow. Seedlings doing well, just transplanted outside.
