Pepper (Hot) ‘Aji Crystal'

Pepper (Hot) ‘Aji Crystal’

Description

One of the few varieties of peppers that is said to be more flavorful when under-ripe than when fully mature. 3-4” long fruit are a unique light yellow-green when under-ripe and have a delicious citrus flavor, but very hot. Since fruit is harvested immature the plant will produce even more – up to 90 fruit per plant! Makes a great pickle and is also tasty when fully ripened to an orange red color. Since this is a C. baccatum species, you can safely save seeds on nearby sweet peppers without danger of cross-pollination. Originally from Curico, Chile. Photo and text courtesy of Adaptive Seeds.

Care: Plant 18-24″ apart in rows 24-30″ apart in full sun. Keep soil uniformly moist (but not waterlogged) for best production.
