Aji Limo
Capsicum chinense

A Peruvian habanero with colourful fruit that are so glossy they look like they’ve been polished. Young fruit are an attractive pastel yellow adorned with patches of lilac. As they mature, they turn orange and finally red.

Most of the fruit are top-shaped and measure about 3 x 4.5cm. They are pleasantly – but not overly – hot, and are graced with a typical habanero aroma.

The tidy, medium tall plants can be grown either in the ground or pots 7.5 to 10 litres in size. Regardless of where they are grown, they will need support to stay upright.

Heat level: hot (approx. 35,000 SHU)
