ajies dulces????

roxy75(9CA)October 14, 2005

I got a plant in the mail from a family member in Puerto Rico called Ajies Dulces. This is used in traditional Puerto Rican and Cuban cooking. I am not sure the requirements for growing in California. I am afraid I will kill it and I can't find any info on the web. Can anyone help???? Thanks

I need to know where I can find ajies dulces in the south Miami, Fla. area. I go to the supermarkets and what they have is Cachucha, Habanero, and Scotch Bonnet Peppers. What are these peppers anyway? I understand some are verry hot. Thankyou for your help.

But to answer Roxy75 - grow as you would other peppers - they are "tender" perennials, so don't let the plants get too cold. I suspect it will do nicely in a large pot with good drainage, standard soil, and water when the soil is dry. If you have only one plant, you *might* improve pepper production by dabbing a soft artist's brush from one blossom to the next (to improve pollination).
