Aji Panca (Capsicum chinense)

The Aji Panca also known as the Aji Brown grows very large up to 6 inches in length and over and inch wide. They ripe to a blackish brown and are often found dried in the Peruvian market. They are known for their rich smoky flavor. Great for adding to BBQ sauces, BBQ rubs, soups, stews or grilled and stuffed. Ideal chile for making a Mexican Mole. If you grow in a container use a large one at least 15 gallon and up because these plants will get over 6 feet tall.

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!
