Aji Rico Hybrid

Aji Rico Hybrid

Matures Early

Aji Rico is an early maturing hot pepper that produces high yields from a vigorous plant. It won the 2017 All-America Selections with good reason. The crispy, thin-walled peppers have a unique citrus flavor with warm heat. They're delicious eaten fresh or added to your favorite recipes. Makes a good choice for farmers' markets since they are ready much sooner in the season than other varieties. 50-55 DAYS (green); 70-75 DAYS (red).
