Aji Amarillo (Capsicum chinense)

The Aji Amarillo is also called the Aji Rojo. The chiles ripen slowly from green to orange. The peppers can get over 6 inches in length and over an inch wide. They have a nice fruity flavor and good heat. The heat is close to a Cayenne pepper. They are often found dried in the Peruvian market but are great for grilling and stuffing since they are so large. If you grow in a container use 15 gallon and up because the plants will get over 6 foot tall and will have to be staked.

At Refining Fire Chiles we isolate our seed production plants to avoid cross-pollination with other chile species. If you want to try it yourself contact us for seeds, plants (March-August) and fresh chiles (September).

We also grow the Trinidad 7 Pot, Trinidad Scorpion, Naga Morich, Chocolate Habanero and many other Hot Chile Pepper plant varieties!
