Aji Benito is an easy to grow, productive variety that produces elongated, smooth fruit that measure about 22 x 62mm, often with a characteristic nipple at the end. The hot fruit change from green to red as they ripen, and have a thick, juicy flesh that is both sweet and crisp. The plants are low growing (slightly less than a half a metre tall) but are quite spreading (a bit over one metre wide), so need plenty of space between plants.
Heat level: 37,000 SHU (low end of the ‘hot’ category ).
