Aji Cachucha is found in Puerto Rico, Cuba and the Dominican Republic. It is also known as Aji Dulce.
The plant grows well in a pot to about 60 cm in height and is a great producer of amazing looking pods. The pods start off green and end up red, when they are fully mature. They are mostly used green, but we prefer to let them ripen, as we find they taste better fully mature. Great for pickling, in a salad or in a mild salsa.
So if you aren’t into heat, here is a great tasting C. Chinense to grow.
Pod size: 4-5 cm long and 1,5 cm high
