‘You just can’t stop eating these flavoursome chillies’
Aji Ahuachapan is a rare Baccatum variety from El Salvador. A beautiful looking plant full of orange chilli peppers with a fantastic flavour.
This chilli is very tall and gangly, therefore you will have to use plant stakes to support it, when it is full of pods.
It grows well in a pot to over a meter in height and is a great producer as well. The pods start off a light green and turn to a warm orange once they are mature.
A great chilli to use in cooking, or it would be a great choice for pickling. They would also make a great chilli jam.
All in all an amazing looking plant, a great producer of chillies with sweet and fruity flavour.
Pod size: 10-12 cm long and 2 cm wide
Flavour: Very sweet and fruity, almost berry like.
Heat level: Medium heat. A chilli for everyone
