Aji Charapita, 10 SEEDS, Capsicum frutescens, homegrown (129)
Tiny, but very fiery, the aji charapita has wild roots. It comes from the jungles of northern Peru and has grown mainly in the wild, only recently being cultivated for commercial use. Its size is small, like an American chiltepin, but that small package contains a lot of fire. It is a favorite as a fresh finishing spice for rice, fish and chicken dishes. And the fruity flavor of aji charapita adds a nice tropical touch to sauces and gravies.
