What are the pros? Flavor

What are the cons? Low germination

Review:

This pepper tastes very similar to the Aji Dulce from Puerto Rico that I tried to grow in southern MD but was not successful. I decided to try this one and was pleasantly surprised to discover that it did well in this climate and the flavor was great. I planted it in a pot more than a year ago and took it inside during winter and it is still producing peppers. It is slow to germinate but you will only need one plant since the peppers are so flavorful. We use it to season beans, Spanish soups, stews, to make sofrito and of course to season arroz con pollo (chicken and rice casserole dish). Thanks Baker Creek for this treat!

Review:

We love this pepper. It is fragrant and flavorful. We dried it and have it in jars crumble into dishes through the year. They take a LLLLOOOONNNNGGGGGGG time to get going, so if you aren't in the south with a long season start them super early in a larger container. When it does warm up then they take off like OKRA and keep going until frost. The first waves of peppers were small, but after spraying with kelp and fish for the final wave it was blooms galore. I sprayed once more and the final fruiting was so heavy the plants were flopping over on the ground they were so heavy with long limbs full of peppers. Next year I will grow them in tomato cages, I'm not kidding. They were taller than any other pepper plant. I would not trim them down, though. The ones that were nibbled down by deer before I got my electric fence up never really recovered fully in time (deer love them). I save seeds separately to share and season. Remember, plants are big so space accordingly. Its worth it.

What are the pros? Great flavor, no heat

What are the cons? slow to get going

Review:

We are so thrilled with these peppers - they're making us rethink our whole gardening program, including plans to build a high hoop tunnel just to grow them. They have the flavor of a Scotch Bonnet but without the heat. We use them in eggs, stews - everything. I've made delicious goat head soup and fish tea with them. My husband vows that this is just like the flavor he grew up with in Jamaica but no heat. They are a little slow to get going but bear tremendously. We live in northern New England. We've gotten more off of the ones we grew in pots and brought indoors for the winter than the ones we grew in the ground - these spent too much time bulking out to put out buds. And then didn't put out many since the temps had started to drop. We have a bunch in our living room for the winter and they seem to be putting out a second round of buds.

What are the pros? Flavour, no heat, produce big

What are the cons? None

Review:

The Arroz con Pollo is a wonderful seasoning pepper, with smell and flavour similar to some Chinense (really fruity tones), but little to no heat. Great in salads, on nachos and to add some spicy on every kind of dish. Beautiful red, wrinkled fruits.

What are the pros? Very prolific.Plants loaded.

What are the cons? Late to bloom. Ripened late.

Review:

Tons of flavorful, habanero scented peppers. Great in sauces and gumbo. 6 plants were way too many. Later germination, just like other peppers in the family.
