‘Delicious chilli from Peru’
The Aji Pineapple is another amazing variety from Peru. It is an amazing producer and easy to grow.
The plant grows well in a pot to about a meter in height and will need a few plant stakes, because it is big and bushy.
The pods are about 6 cm long and 2 cm wide and start off light green and end up yellow. Would be great in salad, in a salsa, in a chilli jam or dried and powdered up.
We can only recommend this lovely chilli and if you are new to growing your own chillies, this would be a great one to start with. You will get lots of delicious pods and this variety likes cooler climate, so you will have a long season.
Flavour wise: Crunchy and taste like a pineapple. Very sweet.
Heat level: Mid heat
