Type: Capsicum Baccutum
What does an Aji Amarillo taste like? Ted Danson would simply call it, “Heaven.” It has a fruity flavor that is complex and well rounded especially when cooked–almost like a spicy mango, apricot or carrot. People have compared it to tasting like sunshine!1
Amarillo means yellow in Spanish, however, this fruit ripens to dark orange. Even unripe, the green Aji Amarillo has a splendid taste with great heat!
This is a Mustard mother fucker of a pepper.
A hybrid between a 7 Pot and a Scotch Bonnet Faria. Definitely has the fruitcore qualities of the Scotch Bonnet. One of the coolest gradients of color for a pepper, a fine trait to have.
There’s nothing quite like a rocoto pepper, and the Peru Bitdumi Rocoto is an amazing cultivar proving it. One of the most underground rocoto peppers you will find, there is not a lot of information about this one out there. Big Ups to Hydro Mode1 for the organic specimen.
Growing the Peru Bitdumi
What separates this plant from other rocoto plants is it seems to be less fussy, a damn fine trait to have. Not as large as other rocotos, on average around two inches. Exceptionally prolific, tough, early and can be grown in any climate.2 Like most other rocotos, it’s still a difficult pepper to grow.
Beads? No, bees. They’re great, aren’t they? This is the European Honey Bee, otherwise known as the Western Honey Bee. It is the most common of all 40 other bee species. Buzzzzzz.
Don’t feel like carrying around a tiny paint brush, painting tiny pepper flowers to pollinate? Are people pointing and laughing from afar? Then you need to ask for the help of the honey bee, an expert pollinator. The honey bee is the most important insect for pollinating crops. Just how much?
A commonly grown, non-invasive french variety. Originally a sacred flower of the Aztecs.
Beneficial in the garden?
You bet. The roots repel nematodes and the flowers can act as a decoy or, strawman for Japanese beetles to protect your other crops.
… marigolds are best known for their ability to suppress plant-parasitic nematodes. Marigold roots release the chemical alpha-terthienyl, one of the most toxic naturally occurring compounds found to date (Gommers and Bakker, 1988). 1
One of the most underground peppers available. Very sweet and fruity! Taste is similar to the Jamy, but, a little more tropical. Fairly long pods with a medium heat. Great spice to this for a baccatum–the burn sticks around for quite a long time on the lips. In the dark!
Native to Guyana, which at the time of this posting, is under threat from a Venezuelan territorial dispute. I think this is more to do with the PI 199506 than silly borders.
