Aji Rico Hybrid Hot Pepper

A Hot Pepper for Northern Gardeners

Can't wait for pepper season? You'll want to try Aji Rico Hybrid Pepper. This hot pepper matures earlier than most, making it a good choice for those with shorter growing seasons and those who want a hot pepper earlier in the summer. This 2017 All-America Selections winner produces high yields of 3-4 in. fruits that are excellent for eating fresh, making into salsas and drying for paprika flavoring. Crispy, thin-walled peppers mature from green to red and have a refreshing citrus flavor with a warm heat. For best results, start pepper seeds indoors and transplant the pepper seedlings outside after the danger of frost has passed. 50-55 DAYS.
