Capsicum baccatum "Aji Benito"

Aji Benito chillies

Aji Benito

Aji Benito flower


A fairly typical Aji from Bolivia with a compact but spreading habit. The distinctively flattened chillies are bright red when ripe, and being held proud, make the plant an attractive ornamental.

Aji Benito plant


One of the hotter baccatum chillies, Aji Benito is early, productive and has a fruity flavour. The thin fleshed chillies dry well, and make a useful chilli powder.
