Aji Charapita - Hot Pepper

A tiny treasure from the Peruvian Amazon, the Aji Charapita only grows to about the size of the tip of your pinky finger, but what this variety lacks in size it makes up for in flavor! These delightfully diminutive peppers are a beloved seasoning pepper in Peru. Just one, crushed with the back of your spoon, will perfectly heat your meal.

Baker Creek's Shannie McCabe and Deb Vlietstra found this variety growing in a Peruvian friend's house in a pot. Indeed the Aji Charapita is a popular house plant in Peru, where the delicious peppers are harvested as needed right in the kitchen. Upon returning from their Amazon jungle expedition Shannie and Deb learned that the Aji Charapita is known as the world's most expensive pepper seed with some reports that it sells for $25,000 per kilo!

Review:

These seeds came with a few extra, which was nice .They have no resistance to bugs . I highly recommend only growing them indoors . I was able to sprout them easily .Growing them was another story . I just got a led so I hope to buy another packet and giving them a another shot
