Info: Die Aji Limo Chili is one of the spiciest chilies from Peru. The bushy plants reach a height of approx. 90 cm. This red ripening Variety has bright red, drop-shaped and juicy fruits with a fruity lemon scent and an intense heat. They are very popular in Peruvian cuisine and are used in the Fish marinade "Ceviche", they are also excellent for fruity salsas and sauces as well as for drying and making into a yellow chili powder.

The plants need fresh, well-fertilised, permeable soil, and do not tolerate waterlogging. They should be planted in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight - preferably more. Put the plants outside approx. 2 to 3 weeks after the last frost.
