Aji Habanero chile pepper

I grew one of these last year, and it did quite well. Great taste (a favorite, in fact, right after Aji Fulce 1). About as hot as Cayenne (it's not a Habanero). It's prolific, and the earliest C. baccatum I've grown. Easiest to grow, too. Large plant (but leaves aren't large and stems aren't thick). Does well in containers (one plant in a 10 gallon, and two plants in an 18-gallon; I haven't tried other configurations). Would probably do well in the ground, but haven't tried it.

I'm growing four plants this year. Three are doing excellently. The other one is small and not doing much. Maybe it was a cross.

Here are some I harvested a few days ago or so. All the pictured peppers come from the same three plants.

The ones in the blue bowl are larger ones that I'm saving for seed:

The following ones are those that fell off the plants (maybe they would have reseeded if I left them there):

I put the pods that had fallen on the ground in the row where the peppers were this year to see if they'll volunteer there next year.

I finally seeded the peppers I set aside to seed. Most of the seeds would fall right out when I'd break the dry pods in two and pour. I zapped them in water and they're drying now. So, I have lots of Aji Habanero seeds! I could have a lot more, too (I could seed the rest of the Aji Habanero peppers).
