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.
