Aji Cachucha Pepper
85-100 days. Capsicum chinese. This is the beloved pepper also known as aji dulce that is so popular in the Caribbean and part of Latin America. Pods are reminiscent of scotch bonnet, but only in shape -- the heat level is super mild, just about 500-1,000 Scoville units, which is much more mild than a habanero. This sweet-fleshed pepper is essential for so many dishes, from sofrito to bean dishes, soups and even just as a raw snack. It is exceptionally versatile and appreciated for its incredible flavor.
