'Aji Amarillo' is the most famous Peruvian pepper, so popular it can be found frozen and in prepared sauces in bodegas across the the United States, even in places where few Peruvians live. The pepper itself is a striking yellow-orange-pink color, long and slender, with a sweet, fruit flavor but also strong heat. The plants thrive with a long, hot growing season, so should be started early. This is a versatile, beautiful, hard-to-find pepper worth a place in any garden.

GROWING TIPS: After danger of frost transplant to garden with 14-18 inches between plants.
