Arroz Con Pollo Pepper

80 days. Originated in eastern Cuba. Another Caribbean “seasoning pepper!” Looks like a habanero but remove the seeds and there is no heat, just delicious flavor. Two or three will season a whole quart of dry beans when cooked. Plants have high yields, best harvested orange to red. For an authentic Cuban recipe, sautee with onion, garlic, annato, and add with fresh chopped cilantro to a pot of beans.

What are the pros? flavorful

What are the cons? few recipes for them

Review:

We had a long dry/hot spell here this summer (8 weeks, no rain and temps 90-105), and these peppers handled it the best. The Arroz Con Pollo plants were the last of the peppers to droop, and it's abundant leaves and general bushiness shaded its fruits so they did not get sun-scorched like the other varieties. I will plant them at least 2 and probably 3 feet apart next year. I think the word "floral" describes the flavor well.

Review:

This peppers unique flavor is totally different than your typical habanero. Infact I can't even come up with anything that taste similar to it. All I know is that its delicious with no heat and has a perfumed aroma. To me ,it seems that this pepper has more flavor when green.I've been using this in chill ,gumbo, enchiladas, and purple hull peas. This is now now my secret weapon when cooking. The plants will get close to 4 feet tall and is a little slow to set fruit , but when it does produce , expect a freezer bag per plant. It is also useful to start indoors early(mid or late march) with heat pad and a grow light.

What are the cons? Took forever to produce

Review:

I tried this pepper on a whim. We like them spicy, but I was intrigued by the description. Especially since my son loves beans and rice. We started them indoors and then moved the plants outside into large pots (storage tubs converted into pots) on our patio. The plants grew tall and strong. I did stake them just to be sure. It felt like ages before I saw the first flower. We had an unusually short season (snow after Mother's Day!) so I feel like I didn't get nearly enough peppers out of my two plants. Once they did flower, though, they produced lots of small, cheery peppers. The flavor is definitely unique. If simply eaten raw/sauteed, it's like eating a flower/perfume. Not for everyone. I thought it was spectacular because it was so different. And I think it definitely added something to my beans. I can see why this is a pepper used for flavoring, though. My husband hated the flower/perfume taste. I would grow it again if not for my husband's dislike and our limited garden space.

What are the pros? Lovely perfumey flavor.

What are the cons? Big plant flopped over

Review:

Started indoors in Feb (Zone 8), set out in May, ripe peppers in mid August. Worth waiting for. Delicious flavor, the seeds have some spice but not overly hot. They dried and flaked well. I will grow these again.

What are the pros? prolific

What are the cons? didn't take off

Review:

Good smoky pepper taste. Very little heat without seeds.Only got two plants to grow, even though started half dozen seeds. One matured by October and is very prolific. It's enough if you don't plan on preserving them and only use them fresh.
