Aji Amarillo

I could not find "Aji Chinchi Amarillo" seeds this year, so I ordered "Aji Amarillo" in hopes it is the same, or at very least very similar.  "Aji Amarillo, a Capsicum Baccatum from Peru. This is the most widely chilli/pepper used in the Peruvian cuisine.  The chilli plant is tall and needs staking as the pods weigh the branches down once it pods up. All our Aji Amarillo chilli plants are in pots and grow to over 1.5m tall.  A great producer of around 15 cm long and about 2.5cm wide pods. The pods start odd a green and go to an amazing orange colour.  Would be great as pickled, as a pasta, in a salad or in any cooking.'  Hippy Seeds
