Aji Amarillo( Capsicum Baccatum)- Peruvian Yellow Chile Pepper, Also Known As "escabeche" or "mirasol" (when it is sun dried)
This pepper variety originates from South America and is also known as Aji Yellow and Aji Escabeche. Aji means pepper and Amarillo means Yellow, but this pepper is more orange than yellow. This plant can grow up to 180 cm. This baccatum has a long growing season and it can endure more cold than other pepper varieties. Aji Amarillo ripens from green tot orange. It has a medium hot flavour with a typical, fruity taste and smell. These peppers are frenquently used in the Peruvian cuisine.

This has to be one of the most essential ingredients in Peruvian cooking. It’s used in popular dishes like papa a la huancayina, ocopa, tamales verdes, oyuco, aji de huacatay, causa rellena and ceviche. It’s not really a very hot pepper, but it’s packed full of flavor. This pepper can be stored dry and reconstituted before use (although this method will limit the number of dishes in which it can be used.
This tall vigorous variety produces 5" long by 1 ¼" wide pods which mature from green to red approximately 85 days after transplanting. The pods are mildly pungent. United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) number PI 260580.

Instruction
PEPPER
Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep. Peppers germinate best in warm soil, so gentle bottom heat may be helpful until seedlings emerge. Wait to transplant outdoors until soil is warm.
Pepper varieties come from tropical humid regions. The temperature, moisture, and air circulation all play a role in growing plants from seeds. Too little heat, too much moisture, and lack of air circulation will cause poor results. Do not use jiffy peat pots, plugs, or potting soil as the soil becomes too dry or too wet, which can lead to disease and fungus. We have experienced disease and low germination when using these types of products. Use Organic Seed Starting Material for best germination results.
Growing Peppers:
Peppers, like tomatoes, grow in well-drained fertile soil. Almost all peppers have the same requirements for successful growth. Plant them in good, well-drained, fertile soil – and make sure they get lots of sunlight and a good inch of water per week. In many ways, they mimic the same requirements needed for growing great tomatoes.

At Planting Time:
We plant all of our peppers with a good shovel full of compost in the planting hole, and then give them a good dose of compost tea every few weeks for the first 6 weeks of growth. We also mulch around each of our pepper plants with a good 1 to 2″ thick layer of compost.
Peppers often like to take their sweet time germinating. They can be up in a week, and some will take almost a month. Even with paper towel germination testing, they can take long. I am not sure why, but it is a normal occurrence. So plan and make sure you start them early enough! Also, remember they like heat to germinate so make sure you have a heating mat or something to keep the soil warm. Placing them up on top of the fridge often works too since it is normally warmer up there.
Peppers do very well grown in pots.
