With proper care, the Aji Golden can be very productive. This species from the South American Andes can grow up to 100cm high and bear 50-100 fruits per plant.
The plants belong to the Capsicum baccatum family. The peppers ripen to dark yellow-orange, are medium hot, very juicy and have a fruity taste. Ideal for fresh consumption or for making hot sauces.
Germination temperature is between 20°C and 28°C (germination period: 8-21 days); It is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat. The plants need fresh, well-fertilized, draining soil and do not tolerate waterlogging. They should be planted in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight - preferably more. When growing outdoors, plant preferably about 2 to 3 weeks after the last frost.
