This variety was gifted to us by a good friend and we're happy to add it to our garden. Aji Amarillo is native to Peru and has been called the most important ingredient in Peruvian cuisine. It's no wonder; this pepper has it all. Hot, sweet, and fruity (mango-like) flavor. Nice tropical aroma. Young fruit start out green, turn yellow, then ripen to a fiery orange. Size of the pods vary but you can generally expect to see peppers 6 inches in length by an inch wide. Heat is similar to Cayenne pepper at 30,000 to 50,000 SHU. Very versatile. Can be used for grilling, stuffing (yes, they're big enough), dried, ground, and any South American dish you can think of. Aji Amarillo do great in a container as well as in-ground. Prolific plants grow to a bit over 6 feet and will need to be staked. 85 days to maturity. Open-pollinated.
Sow seeds indoors, 1/4" deep, in a warm location. 14-28 days to germinate. Transplant to fertile soil in containers or hedge 20" apart, at least 3' between rows, in areas with full sun in the spring.
Shipping and Combined Shipping
NYCfigs ships on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
We never 'pass the savings' of expensive shipping charges to the customer and always ship as economically as possible. Sometimes this becomes a juggling act between cost-of-goods vs. cost-of-container vs. shipment size vs. shipping cost vs. margins. With combined shipping, it's all in the packing and we'll always find the most inexpensive shipping method available. But there are times when it's impossible to ship economically and we'll always let you know before paying. The shipping for all items sold by NYCfigs will combine automatically with all other items purchased from NYCfigs. Items that ship free can't be discounted. In the rare instance of excess shipping charges, NYCfigs will refund after the invoice is paid. This ensures your items are received in a timely manner.
