55 days for green fruits; 75 for red. These times are from setting out transplants.

Now even gardeners in the far north can enjoy a big harvest of peppers! Aji Rico Hybrid is a South American (C. baccatum) variety with masses of conical fruits that can be harvested green at just 55 days after transplanting! If you can wait another 20 days or so, they'll reach full red maturity, but they are delicious even when green. Go ahead, sow these seeds now -- they will repeat their harvests as long as the warm weather holds!

Aji Rico walked off with a 2017 All-America Selection, not only for its early maturity but for its big yields and flavor. Pick the fruit promptly and new flowers will arise, leading to even more peppers! This pepper also gets high marks for versatility: if you remove the seeds from the fruits, they are only mildly hot. For a spicier bite, include seeds in your salsas and sauces! Or dry the whole pepper and then grind it up for a nicely pungent, fragrant paprika from your own garden. (Good holiday gift idea!)

The flavor of these peppers is really unusual. It's got the chile notes you'd expect, with a juicy fresh bite, but it also has hints of citrus. This makes it great for salsa, especially fruit salsas that need just a touch of heat without losing their sweet fruit taste!

Aji Rico reaches about 30 to 36 inches high and at least as wide, unless you train the stems upward to keep them from "bushing out." You can easily grow this pepper in a big tub on the porch. The peppers reach about 3 to 4 inches long, with an average diameter of 1½ inches and a weight of 1.5 ounces. Expect 50 to 75 in a single harvest!

You will find Aji Rico to be widely adapted, vigorous, and trouble-free. As with all hot peppers, it boasts a spicy aroma that helps keep pests off the plants, so you may want to plant a few Aji Ricos among your favorite flowering plants as well as in the vegetable patch. It's a great natural pest repellent!

Start seeds indoors or, in climate with short growing seasons, outdoors at least one week after last frost. If starting indoors, allow 7 to 10 weeks for the seeds to mature into seedlings large enough to transplant safely. Set seedlings (or thin direct-sown seedlings) 2 feet apart in full sun. If planting many seedlings, space rows about 3 feet apart. Fertilize when the blooms appear, and water well. Pkt is 10 seeds.

Superior Germination Through Superior Science

Park's Superior Seeds Park Seed's humidity- and temperature-controlled seed storage vault Park Seed offers some of the highest-quality vegetable and flower seeds available in the industry, and there are a number of reasons for this.

First of all, we have humidity- and temperature-controlled storage, and we never treat any of our seeds with chemicals or pesticides. Nor do we ever sell GMO's (genetically modified seeds), so you always know the products you're buying from us are natural as well as safe for you and the environment.

Superior Standards - University Inspected

Testing seeds against minimum germination standards To make sure we are providing the best seed product possible and that our customers will get the highest number of seedlings from every packet, we conduct our own germination testing and have quality-control measures in every stage of our seed-handling operation. We hold ourselves to standards that are at or above federal and state standards, including testing specific crops more frequently than recommended by federal guidelines. And in order to maintain our organic certification, we welcome Clemson University to inspect us annually to make sure our organic seeds, which are stored and processed separately, are being handled properly.

Hand Packed By Experienced Technicians

Park Seed has been handling and packing vegetable and flower seeds for 145 years, a history that has given us a great understanding of how each variety should be cared for and maintained throughout every step of theprocess, from collection to shipping.

When packing our seeds, the majority are actually done by hand (with extreme care!), and we often over-pack them, so you're receiving more than the stated quantity.

The Park Seed Gold Standard

Park Seed's exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil seed packets And many of our seeds are packed in our exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil packets, which are lined to keep moisture out, so the seeds stay fresher for longer. We carefully pack very tiny or fragile seeds in crush-proof vials to ensure safe delivery to your home. Some of the small seeds are also offered as "pellets" (have a clay coating) to make sowing and growing easier.

Our on-staff horticulturists are ready and available to share their expertise to help you with the success of these seeds, so you can grow a beautiful and productive garden!
