Aji Rico Hybrid Hot Pepper

Be the First to Have Ripe Hot Peppers

  • Earlier than most peppers
  • Award winner for high yields and flavor
  • A staff favorite in hot sauces
  • Fresh citrus flavor with warm heat
  • Extremely productive plants
Can't wait for hot 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. Aji Rico was a staff favorite for complex and remarkably delicious hot sauce. Crispy, thin-walled peppers mature from green to red and have a refreshing citrus flavor with a warm heat. Extraordinarily productive. For best results, start pepper seeds indoors and transplant the pepper seedlings outside after the danger of frost has passed. 50-55 DAYS.
