Originating in South America over 7,000 years ago, this pepper is hardly popular outside of Southern and Latin American cuisine and is just now gaining recognition in The United States and India.

  • Part of the capsicum-annuum family

  • "Aji Amarillo" is Spanish for yellow pepper

  • High in vitamin C and potassium
