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? Very prolific, beautiful plant

What are the cons? slow to germinate

Review:

I have tried for years to grow the cousin to this pepper, aji dulce, from seed, and I finally got it to get past seedling stage. Arroz con pollo was equally challenging to get to germinate and then push past that germination stage without withering away. It takes a super long time to get to production stage as well. Once you get it going, it is very prolific with minimal work. I basically left it alone once it got big enough to produce, and it did great. Once mature, it needs very little other than sun and occasional water. It is November in VA, and I just got a huge final harvest from my bucket-grown plant. These are smaller and more narrow than the aji dulce and more of a touch of bell pepper flavor as well, but very good flavor. I think aji dulce has more bite, a touch of spiciness, but arroz con pollo produces a bit more. I would definitely recommend this plant. Makes a great seasoning paste with garlic, onion, cilantro, parsley, oregano. Freezes well. Cook with seeds.

What are the pros? Good flavor

What are the cons? Slow to mature

Review:

These guys took forever to grow, and seemed to stall out completely in our hot summer. Planted outdoors in Match, we didn't see flowers until September! Only a few peppers matured fully on the small plants by first freeze. The flavor is nice and fruity, but unless you're in the tropics, I'd recommend Habanada instead, as it has a similar taste but much better growth and productivity.

What are the pros? Excellent Flavor, Productive

What are the cons? Takes a while to get going

Review:

Like other reviewers have mentioned, these peppers take a while to get going. But once they do, watch out! I have 3 of them in my garden, and I have frozen them and dried them. I am making chili powder out of them currently. There are SO many peppers on the vines still. The flavor is like a habanero without any of the heat. The plants are quite large (3' ). Highly recommend.

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.
