Aji Charapita Hot Pepper Seed

Qty
Item #138339, 10 Seeds

Description

The most expensive pepper in the world! Aji Charapita peppers sell for $25,000 per kilo to Lima’s best chefs, and are nearly impossible to find outside of Peru. A Tepin-like pepper with a distinctly fruity citrus aroma, equal in heat to a cayenne. Thin-skinned peppers turn yellow when ripe and continue producing for two months once they get going. Used fresh, gives salsas and sauces a unique tropical taste. More often, it is used in powdered form.
