Aji Dulce Pepper

    Aji Dulce Pepper


    Packet of seeds is about 36-60 seeds, depending on the variety. [Venezuelan heirloom. Seed source from Donna Hudson in TN.] Has the same shape, size, color, and aroma as Habanero, but is sweet, spicy, and delicious, with only a trace of heat. Highly aromatic fruits; their flavor is unusual and complex, with overtones of black pepper and coriander, and undertones of other spicy flavors. An excellent choice for sautéed vegetables, rice and bean dishes, paprika, or herbal vinegar. The thin-walled pendant fruits are 1" x 2", tapering at both the stem and blossom end. Plants have good foliage cover and bear at 18” high. Seedlings grow slowly at first but grow rapidly later in the season. (C. chinense ) 111 days. (green > orange-red > red)

    Good to start from seed in these months:

    North Florida: January-April, July-August

    Central Florida: January-March, July-August

    South Florida: January, August-December
