If you would like multiple, thin-walled hot peppers when you have shorter growing seasons or want a hot pepper early in the summer, the Aji Rico pepper is a great choice! The Aji Rico plant produces about 120 peppers, with the pepper growing to three to four inches, and this pepper can be eaten at any stage. It ripens from green to ripe red and can be harvested green at just 55 days after transplanting! “Aji” means chili in South America, and these peppers provide a citrus, juicy, crunchy red bell pepper flavor that is perfect to add to any dish or to eat fresh. The narrow, conical Aji Rico creates a medium heat burn that stays on your tongue, and it is an enjoyable flavor.
