Are you sick of Shakeology? Try a Farmers Market Jalapeño. It is a capsicum annuum that corks like a potato. Corking generally occurs when a pepper stretches to accommodate the rapid growth of the fruit. And this has extreme corking!™ This very rare variety was discovered John Fiedler from ME at a farmers market, hence the name.
“The jalapeno I got from a pepper buddy who found it at a farmers market and gave it that name.” 1
Well, that is pretty straightforward. Like a regular jalapeño, they ripen from green to red. Tastes a bit normcore, crisp and slightly sweeter. Here’s some photo documentation before fully ripe. I will hopefully be trying a ripe one soon.
Here cometh that Aji Brazilian Starfish. It is a strange lil pep from Brazil, which should probably not come as a shock to you. Sources state it is Agent Mulder’s favorite pepper. The Aji Brazilian Starfish is very similar in weirdness, taste and shape to the Bishop’s Hat Pepper.
Weird and great taste!
Very chillwave, sweet and tasty, with a clean baccatum floral. Tastes almost like the nectar from honeysuckles. There seem to be a few different varieties of the Aji Brazilian Starfish floating around.
Compared to the posing specimen, some have more ridges along the side and are shaped like a pumpkin. Ripens from green to red. These are perfect for fresh snacking while you’re crying and watching Degrassi.
Holy wow. The smaller, spicier, and more pungent version of the Aji Amarillo. It’s like being punched in the face, but you like it more than usual!
Strong, floral and clean baccatum taste and apparently the hottest in the entire species. Smaller pods, around 2-3 inches. Much tastier when cooked, the fruit flavor really shines like a new car. It’s one of the fastest peppers there is–can reach up to 30mph on land. Continue reading Aji Cito Pepper
Ornamental with minimal heat, very tasty pepper. A hit with at least 2 people I know (the cultivators of this underground internet blog). Ripens from green to orange. Growing in the Florida sun, turns into a bright red orange.
Really strange, pungent capsicum baccatum pepper. A fairly well known underground cultivar. Can taste almost soapy at times like cilantro, in an interesting floral way.
Very strong burst of citrusy baccatum flavor on first bite, similar to the Aji Cito and even the Lemon Drop. And it’s no slouch in the department of heat, got a nice kick to it! It does taste a little bit like pineapple. Really delicious baked with coconut oil and a great alternative to Cayenne type dishes.
Originated in Brazil. Fruity and extremely juicy. This pepper tastes very tropical, like a Habanero that was beat up by a can of Crystal Pepsi. An interesting and sexy spin on the chinense flavor–strong and clean.
In terms of heat, not as hot as the Habanero or more closely related Cheiro Roxa. Great for fresh snacking while contemplating the spookiness of quantum entanglement.
Ripens from reddish purple to a pretty peach pink color. A very futuristic little pepper, for sure.
Preheat oven to 300° for wraps. Heat the oil/butter in a skillet on low-medium. Add the onions and chopped peppers and stir until they look real nice, 7-10 minutes. Add the eggs and mix those lil boys up. Heat the wraps for a 2-3 minutes in the oven.
Take the wraps out of the oven and then place the eggs on the wrap, ya dingus. You can also do it others ways too, I don’t care. オムレツ
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!
