Aji Pineapple (Capsicum baccatum)

The Aji Pineapple is a gorgeous yellow baccatum pepper with elongated fruits that average from 2-3 inches long. They begin green and ripen to the vibrant yellow that you see in the photos. Similar to other Ajis, which are typically bright and fruity, the Aji Pineapple runs around 20,000 Scoville Heat Units, so it is moderately hot.

I'm told this is a rare chili pepper, though that is a shame. It is a delicious pepper and works in many a dish. The plants are easy to grow and are very productive, at least from my personal experience.

They are so named because, true to form, they have a distinct pineapple taste. Very fruity. Perfect for a hot sauce. Speaking of...

    Those peppers at least they look like them - I've grown and they were called lemon boys and they had a very distinct lemon taste ; like lemon zest.

    Rajesh and Angela, did any owner/person of this site ever answer you? I'd like to know the same thing. I was about to check around on this site for some catalog of seeds or something that you would think this site would have. Sounds like I won't have much luck.

    REPLY: There are a number of seed sellers that you can find online. I got mine this year from Superhotchiles.com. We do not sell seeds here. - Mike from Chili Pepper Madness.
