A bit spicy and a pungent baccatum! Another Peruvian favorite. Also called the Aji Limon, or Kellu Uchu in Peru.
Similar to the Aji Cito or Aji Pineapple, but, a sharper taste. Very floral and tastes a bit like lemons, especially when cooked. To clear up any confusion relating to similarly spelled pods, check this out.

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
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.
