Country of origin


Sunny yellow Peru

The Incas literally loved this pepper and its popularity has remained in Peru to this day. That's why you can find this pepper almost everywhere because it is grown here at every turn. Its name comes from the Indian word Aji, the word for chilli, and the word Amarillo, which means yellow. Despite its name, the pepper ripens to a deep orange colour.
