Aji Pinga de Perro
Aji Pinga de Perro is a remarkable chilli pepper from Lindberg Figueroa in Venezuela. Pinga de Perro means Dog Penis in Catalan and perhaps this chilli can resemble a dog’s penis. The plant grows to over 80 cm tall in a pot and would grow bigger, if you plant it in the ground.
This chilli plant really stands out in the garden when it’s full of amazing looking pods. The pods are big about 10-11 cm long and 2.5-3 cm wide, start off green and end up a bright red.
Very thick juicy pods with a medium heat that would be excellent in any dish or pickled.
All in all a great producer, easy to grow and with a long season, because the chilli seems to like the cool weather as well. We can only recommend this great variety.
Flavour wise: Very juicy with a fresh apple flavour, almost like a Granny Smith apple.
Heat level: Slow building heat with a pleasant burn and not a stingy, that some Annuums have. Medium heat.
