Aji Chombo RED Chilli
Originally from Panama
The heat level of this chilli is extreme hot.
This chilli goes great sparingly in any dish that needs a bit of a bite to it! The chilli pods go from green to red over time. The chilli pod looks quite similar to an average Habanero but the flavour is very different, the heat is still there though and equivalent to a nice and juicy Habanero. This variety is used in vinegar based sauces in Caribean islands and Central America and mixed in a lot of specialities from those regions. When fully grown the Aji Chombo plant can grow up to 90 – 120 cm high and you should be able to get a lot of fresh fruit during the chilli season which lasts approximate 4 to 6 months.
