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?

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!

It does taste a little bit like pineapple. Really delicious baked with coconut oil and a great alternative to Cayenne type dishes.
