What a flavour sensation this one is…The Aji Amarillo pepper is literally named “yellow chilli pepper” and is grown extensively in Peru. The fruit have a thick skin and grow to approximately 15cms long and 2cms wide. Not too hot as chillies go this one balances heat with an awesome fruity flavour reminiscent of mango and passion-fruit. You have to taste it to believe it. This one makes a great paste but is terrific in sweet curries. The Aji Armarillo is also super easy to grow and pumps out lots and lots of fruit over its long growing season.

The Mucho Nacho is another great hybrid Jalapeño variety that has become a much treasured one in our kitchen. The Mucho Nacho Jalapeño is longer, wider, heavier and hotter than than your standard Jalapeño and is begging to be turned into super sized spicy poppers. This hybrid variety grew like a trooper here in the tropics and pumped out an astounding amount of fruit. The pods grow up to 8cms long by 3cms wide and are super sweet when they ripen to red. Definitely one of the best Jalapeño peppers we have grown, so why not try them out for yourself.
