Yellow Aji Fantasy Pepper

SHU: 5,000
Origin: Finland

A fine specimen, cultivated by Jukka at fatalii.net. This variety is NOT open source.

I own plant breeders rights (PBR) for this variety which means that I have the privilege to decide how it can be used commercially. PBR is a “patent for plants”. 1

How does it taste?

aji-fantasy-boxThe yellow variety is crunchy and fruity ajíwave awesomeness! It’s earthy and mild, with a clean baccatum flavor. Absolutely perfect for fresh snacking while playing Final Fantasy VII. One of the best.

Unfortunately, they will not be available for purchase anytime soon in the local ShopRite! That is, until Jukka starts a grow operation overseas or licenses distribution rights. Get it together Jukka, I would buy these things by the pound!

Guyana PI 199506 Pepper

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.

Datil Pepper

Say hello to the Habanero’s fun younger counterpart. More tropical flavor than the Habanero, but not as much heat. Eating a whole one fresh is possible with some practice, but these bastards can get quite hot–especially with a lot of sunlight during the summer. More similar to a lessor known Capsicum Chinese, the Fatalii. The pepper begins as a simple green and ripens to a nice orange.

Cheiro Roxa Pepper

SHU: 100,000 estimated
Type: Capsicum Chinese

A super dope, rare and productive variety from Brazil. One of the most unique looking pepper plants you will ever come across! Dark purplish green leaves make this one quite strange. The Cheiro Roxa pods start off as a dank purple and eventually become a creamy pink color that’s quite amazing! Would be really interesting as a hybrid.

Aji Santa Cruz Pepper

rad-racer-sunsetThese bright red peppers remind me of the sunset level on Rad Racer, they’re that chill. And FAST.

One the largest baccatums I’ve seen. By far, one of the most underground and sexy peppers. They out there. However, in terms of spice, little or no heat to this one. Very mildwave.

Costa Rican Yellow Rocoto Pepper

SHU: 10,000 – 30,000 estimated
Type: Capsicum Pubescens

In the words of Uncle Jessie, “Have Mercy.” Forget everything you know about underground peps because your life is about to be turned upside down. This is the Costa Rican Yellow Rocoto and it’s the best pepper we’ve ever had, hands down. Allow me to explain.
