Aji Fantasy Seeds - Capsicum Baccatum - Very Sweet & Fruity

Quantity: 10 Seeds
Species: Capsicum Baccatum
Scovilles: 5,000 - 10,000


Aji Fantasy is a mild and delicious variety of pepper of the baccatum species. These peppers have an odd shape, but but an outstanding flavour. Like many baccatums, they taste fruity and sweet, but this variety has a very low heat, so it may be tolerated and enjoyed by many. These plants can grow quite large; about 5 feet tall, and 3 feet wide, and will eventually be weighted down by an abundance of beautiful and delicious fruits. These peppers are great for fresh eating, making into sauce, or the pods can be dried to make great tasting flakes and powder.


All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

  • Growing Instructions

    It's best to start pepper seeds as early in the season as possible; we start them here on the farm in January. It's good to sow them in a sterile growing medium; most available seed starting soils should do the job nicely; we use sunshine mix (peat moss and perlite). The soil should be made moist, but not damp. Sow the seeds 1/4 inch below the soil surface. Store in a warm area until tiny sprouts emerge from the soil. A heat mat aids in this step, but is not necessary. Seeds can take between 2-8 weeks to germinate, but they can sometimes take less time too. Once germinated, and the first true leaf has formed, it's time to pot up to a larger container that contains a good quality potting soil. Transplant to their final location when the nighttime temperatures are consistently 8°C or higher. These peppers grow very well in pots or containers; I recommend 5 gallon pots of larger. Peppers do best when grown in full sun.
