This chili pepper is the most expensive in the world! Although still fairly unknown in most Western countries, the Aji Charapita is a highly sought-after treat among chili pepper connoisseurs and five-star restaurant chefs.  

Native to the jungles of northern Peru, the Aji Charapita is known as wild chili pepper and has only recently being cultivated for commercial use.  Due to its rarity and hefty prices, it is often known as the "Mother of All Chilis" With a Scoville hotness rating of between 30,000 – 50,000 units, the Aji Charapita will burn a hole through your tongue as well as your wallet.

Nicknamed “the mother of all chili” Aji Charapita reportedly costs a minimum of $25,000 per kilo, making it the most expensive chili pepper in the world, and one of the most expensive spices, along with vanilla and saffron.

It may be small (up to 1 meter in height), but the Charapita chili or ‘aji Charapita’ as it is known in Peru is not to be underestimated. Aji Charapita (Capsicum chinense) or Charapita is a bushy shrub that produces masses of (over 400 fruits per plant) small maturing yellow round peppers. 

Used fresh, this tiny pepper has a strong fruity flavor that gives salsas and sauces a tropical taste, but it is mostly used in powdered form to a bit of spiciness to various dishes.  The ripe fruit was simply pierced or squeezed and the juice utilized as a piquant finishing spice on food. These chilies also bring many health benefits. Their capsaicinoids can help improve digestion and circulation when consumed as part of a balanced diet.
