Plug plant of a habanero chilli Capsicum chinense

A Peruvian specialty that is one of our milder habaneros. The fruit are often top-shaped, though their shape can vary, even on the same plant. They measure about 30 x 45mm and have a glossy skin that looks as if it has been polished. When they are young, the fruit are a light yellow colour punctuated with large patches of lilac purple. As they mature, they turn to orange and finally red. The plants are not overly tall and so can be grown in either in pots or the ground, though in both cases they will need support. A stunningly attractive plant that will lighten up any greenhouse or conservatory.

Note: The term "Aji" is commonly used for chillies belonging to the species C. baccatum. However, although this variety is a C. chinense, it is called Aji Limo in the region of Peru where it originates.

Approximate heat level: 35,000 SHU
