Aji Rico Hybrid

Hot Pepper Seeds

(Hybrid) 50 to 55 days green; 70 to 75 days red

An All-America Selections Award Winner. Aji Rico is an exceptionally vigorous hybrid derived from the South American species, Capsicum baccatum. Fruit grows to 3-4 in. long and 1½ in. wide, and are super crunchy eaten raw. Aji Rico peppers dry nicely, and lend a mildly spicy, citrus-like flavor to salsas. Large indeterminate plants grow 30 to 36 in. tall and spread slightly wider. Each prolific plant can produce 50-75 peppers.
