Ají Limón Chile Powder


 Ají Limón is also known as Aji Lemon, Aji Limo, Lemon Drop pepper, or in it's native Peru as Qillu Uchu. This chile has incredible citrus and hops notes if you can get past its stinging heat. As a note: these chiles need a much hotter climate than we can provide on our farm and we won't be growing it again. Once the 2021 harvest is gone, it's gone!

Flavor Profile.

  • Notes: lemony citrus ~ hops ~ the hottest chile on the farm 
  • Use like: well... probably pretty sparingly. The heat is no joke.
  • Use on: ceviche, Peruvian Aji de Gallina, in a fermented hot sauce, or paired with bright, acidic flavors like vinegar, coriander, and garlic. 
  • SHU: The internet will tell you 30,000-50,000 but this is way hotter than our comapeño or any other chile we've grown. Our guess is closer to 100,000.
