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? Taste

What are the cons? Not “cool” hardy

Review:

I am so anxious to try this plant. I love these Caribbean seasoning type peppers, and was excited to get to grow some. However, I had some challenges getting this to germinate, and then - when I finally got a couple set out, we had a really cool night, not a frost, just 38 degrees or so. These plants (and my holy basil) were killed by it. I will definitely try again, with the knowledge that they can’t go into the garden as early as most other peppers.

Review:

**This review is only about the germination stage. I will update this review once the plants start bearing fruit!** I planted 30 seeds indoors in a seedling tray using Jiffy expandable peat cells (1 seed per cell). I used a heating mat 24/7 that was set to about 75 degrees Fahrenheit. I used a T5 bulb that sits about 10" above the seedling tray and put the light on a timer for 16 hours a day. I kept the peat moist but not drenched. The seeds began sprouting around 9 days after planting and continued to sprout until around 14 days after planting. I ultimately wound up with 10 seedlings, for a 30% germination rate. Thus, I recommend planting 3 to 4 times as many seeds as the number of plants you think you'll want. The seedlings are growing quite slowly; they're now at 20 days post-planting (6 - 11 days post-sprouting) and are only about 1" - 1.5" tall. They seem to be doing really well, though. I'm eager to see how many of these 10 seedlings grow to maturity and bear fruit!

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.

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.
