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? Unique flavor

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.

What are the pros? Fantastic flavor and aroma.

What are the cons? Very slow to germinate.

Review:

I first experienced these peppers in Cuba and became obsessed with finding them here. I love the distinctive flavor and aroma of habaneros, but their heat really limits how I can use them. The Arroz con Pollo peppers have the exact flavor and aroma profile as a habanero but are completely free of the heat! I use them all the time! They were slower than all of my other plants (tomatoes, peppers, eggplants) to germinate. Since they were the plants I was the most excited about, Murphy's Law would suggest that they would be the seeds that wouldn't grow. Fortunately, I learned that slower germination is a characteristic of the smaller, and typically hotter, pepper varieties. Most of the seeds eventually sprouted in their own sweet time, but I will consider giving them a two week head start over my other seeds next year. It is my prediction (and hope) that these peppers will become a hot commodity in farmers markets in the coming years.
