Pepper- Aji Dulce
Photo by Windcrest Farm
Southern Exposure Seed Exchange
Looking for a different variety?
Our most popular pepper at market last year! The flavor of an Habanero but without the heat. Aji Dulce has the same shape, size, color and aroma of Habanero, but is sweet, spicy, and delicious, with only a trace of heat. The fruits are highly aromatic and the flavor is unusual and complex, with overtones of black pepper and coriander, and undertones of other spicy flavors. Aji Dulce is an excellent choice for sauted vegetables, rice and bean dishes, paprika, or herbal vinegars. We de-seed them, chop fine and add olive oil before storing in the freezer for winter use. The thin-walled pendant fruits are 2" long and 1" wide, tapering at both the stem and blossom end. Plants have good foliage cover and bear at 18" high. Seedlings are slow growing at first, but grow rapidly later in the season. Ripens from green to orange-red to red. This heirloom variety hails from Venezuela. Days to maturity: 111

Peppers love warm weather. For best pepper harvests:
Fertile, well-drained soil
Soil pH: 6-6.8
Transplant when daytime temperatures reach 70°F and night time temperatures are above 55°F
Average spacing: 12-18" between plants in rows 36-48" apart
Harvest when fruits are full grown, but still firm and crisp
Harvest colored varieties when desired color develops
Snap fruits off by hand being careful not to break branches or damage plants.
Harvest frequently to maintain production
Store at 45-50°F and 90-95% relative humidity
Do not store below 42°F
Pest and Disease Prevention
Avoid overhead irrigation
Practice crop rotations with all Solanceae species
Use floating row covers to prevent insect damage, but remove prior to flowering or in hot weather
Increase plant spacing in areas with high disease pressure
Ensure adequate calcium and avoid wide fluctuations in moisture to prevent blossom end rot
Isolate hot and sweet peppers to prevent cross pollination which can result in heat in sweet varieties
Hotter growing conditions increase heat in chile peppers.
