Capsicum baccatum (Aji Amarillo)

Another of my favorite peppers. This pepper is usually dried & powdered. The powder is used in a variety of Bolivian and Peruvian dishes.

I use as much fresh as I can. I also sometimes BBQ one or two to give them a nice smoky flavor and then chop and use wherever heat is required.

No special requirements when growing this pepper. When mature, staking will probably be required to prevent branches from breaking under the load of peppers. Harvest when bright orange. Use fresh or dry and powder.
