Looks good.
Is this from the small pepper or the big one I see from Peru in stores here?

larger ones 6 inch + got the seeds from Fred, maybe should of planted them sooner, cold weather came, got about a dozen that turned orange, the rest stayed green, quite a few green ones, and tons of blossoms left, probably do better in longer growing season---tom

Your experience is the same as ours. We typically germinate in early Feb,
transplant to the field in May and in late October the plants still have lots of peppers.

I think we got about 3-5 lbs per plant total this year, and there are probably 1-2 lbs left on the average plant. They produce well, but they ripen after most all of our other peppers have ripened peppers.

That is one advantage of the small Aji Amarillo -- You can get ripe peppers sooner in shorter growing seasons.

Very interesting. Are the peppers they are selling from Peru? Or somewhere else? I am surprised you can find them in stores.

For a moment I thought they were selling them fresh.

Cans and Jars makes sense.

Yes they are canned fresh not pickled.
Very tasty too, but pricey.
You can get rocoto peppers the same way.
But they sell manzano fresh from Mexico.

Is it a blade grinder or burr mill?

Both my blade grinder and burr mill are now pepper grinders.
I took the burr mill apart and added paper shims to one of the burrs and got it to within about .003 of the other burr on the fine setting.

Mine are Cuisinart here is the blade type I have had for many years.
The stainless container comes out so you can dump it.


The one I modified is like this one.
