Aji Amarillo (Capsicum baccatum)- The Aji Amarillo chiles ripen slowly from green to orange. The peppers can get over 6 inches in length and over an inch wide. They have a nice fruity flavor and good heat. The heat is close to a Cayenne pepper. They are often found dried in the Peruvian market but are great for grilling and stuffing since they are so large. If you grow in a container use 15 gallon and up because the plants will get over 6 foot tall and will have to be staked. The Aji Amarillo chile plants grow 4-5 feet tall.

    Growing Aji Amarillo from seed in the ground, in Hawaii. My 2 plants are producing peppers about 3-4 inches long - green ones turn yellow at about 3 inches. Question: Do they turn orange 3 - 4 months later after turning yellow?

      Amarillo. Seed package was labelled incorrectly.
