This rare variety is among the hottest of the little Aji’s known in Peru measuring 70,000 – 80,000 Scoville units. The Aji Pinguita de Mono Pepper is found in all regions of the Peruvian jungle, mainly in the central valley of Chanchamayo.
The plant is amazing and gets quite big. In a pot it grows to nearly 6 feet tall and as wide and it’s chock full of pods about 2.5cm long and around 1cm wide. An awesome producer that just continues to produce all season round.
Flavour wise: Sweet with a touch of sour and a slight appleish as well. It is a quite unusual but amazing flavour, that you’ll have to try to believe it. We love the flavour as it is different.
Heat wise: Has a decent solid burn all over, that goes for ages as well.
The Pinguita de Mono Pepper is an easy grower, a big and bushy chilli plant, a great producer as it goes all season long, great flavour and an upper mid heat burn that you will love, we totally recommend this chilli variety.
Note that wherever the number of seeds is indicated in grams, there may be more or fewer seeds in the package because the seeds are not the same size and weight.
If indicated in grams, the number of seeds loses relevance and is only there to show the approximate number of seeds in the package.
For example "Price for pack of 50 (1g) seeds." so you are not buying the number of seeds but the weight.
