Aji Amarillo - Peruvian Chili Pepper Seeds

Price for Package of 10 seeds.

Aji amarillos, also known asaji escabeche or Peruvian chiles, areimportant to Peruvian cuisine for their use as a condiment (when mixed with red onion and cilantro).

30,000-50,000 Scovilles. Since “Amarillo” is the Spanish word for yellow, and “Ají” is the term for chile in South America, this pepper is also appropriately known as the “yellow chile.” The Ají Amarillo is grown in all areas of Peru. Used by the Incas, it is still the most common and popular chile in that country.

 

The chilli plant is tall and needs staking as the pods weigh the branches down once it pods up. All our Aji Amarillo chilli plants are in pots and grow to over 1.5m tall.  A great producer of around 15 cm long and about 2.5cm wide pods. The pods start odd a green and go to an amazing orange colour.

 

It may be said that is it possibly the most important ingredient in Peruvian cooking.

Like other chiles from this area, the Amarillo has a fruity, berry-like flavor. It is medium in heat level, but it does not leave your mouth burning. It is also great as a condiment.
