Arroz Con Pollo Pepper

1 Review | Write a Review

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? Fantastic flavor and aroma.

What are the cons? Very slow to germinate.


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.
