Aji Chombo does take some effort to properly germinate. Gorgeous plant with compact and stocky growing pattern. Despite the size it requires no staking. Production is fair. Glossy surface, light red, and slightly wrinkled. Very fruity aroma, almost likely candy. Taste is sweet and very fruity and the heat is very pronounced. In terms of heat, think potent Habanero with more backbone and is superb in hot sauces...both fermented and cooked.
