Aji Amarillo Seeds
Aji Amarillo is the chile most frequently used in Peru and probably the most important ingredient in Peruvian cooking. Aji means chili pepper and amarillo means yellow in Spanish. This chile is found in the famous appetizer Papa a la Huancaína (Potatoes with Spicy Cheese Sauce), and in the classic dish Ají de Gallina (Peruvian Creamed Spicy Chicken). Its fruity mango-like taste is delicious with a nice tropical aroma.
The Capsicum baccatum species all have fuzzy leaves as a distinguishing characteristic, and this one is no different. The plant is lanky and a very large 4' - 5' tall. It produces an abundance of 5-6” peppers that start off green and mature to deep yellowish-orange. It has a wonderful fruity flavor with intense heat. Capsicum baccatum (85 days)
Heat Level: Very Hot Scoville 30,000 - 50,000

In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light, and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart or into large 5-gallon containers. Harvest chiles when they are yellowish-orange.
