Aji Limo Chili is one of the spiciest chilies from Peru. The bushy plants reach a height of approx. 90 cm. The bright yellow, drop-shaped and juicy fruits have a fruity lemon scent and an intense spiciness. They are very popular in Peruvian cuisine and are used in the Fish marinade “Ceviche”, they are also excellent for fruity salsas and sauces as well as for drying and making into a yellow chili powder.
Care: The germination temperature is between 22 und 28°C (8 – 21 day germination period), therefore the use of a greenhouse and a heating mat is recommended. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised, permeable soil, and do not tolerate waterlogging. They should be planted in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight – preferably more. Put the plants outside approx. 2 to 3 weeks after the last frost.
