Chilli Aji Benito Plant


A great hot chilli with a fruity flavour. The plant has a nice compact habit, making it ideal in areas where space is limited. The fruit is a very distinctive, a slightly flattened shape that tapers to a dull point.

Take a look at our Chilli Pots/Containers Here

Heat: 6/10 

Fruit Size: The fruit will be around 5cm long and 2cm wide. 

Uses: With a lovely fruity flavour these chillies are nice to add to any dish. They work very well in jams and chutneys as well as being good for drying.

Ideal for container or pot? A great choice for a small space, They will spread a bit so whilst they are short this variety is not best for a windowsill. 


Is this plant "garden ready"? As with all Chilli plants they love the heat. This is especially true when they are young. All Chilli starter plants should be grown on the windowsill or a greenhouse until they are established and the weather is warm. 

What compost should I use? A good quality multi-purpose compost is ideal for this. You can use your own compost but make sure you know that it is not too high (or low) in nutrients. 

What is a plug plant/starter plant? A plug plant is a small starter plant that is perfect to pot up into a larger plant. We grow and sell so many of these because they allow us to do it for such a good price. 

Will I get the plants in the picture? Yes, In the main picture. As this plant is a starter plant it will not be fruiting but will grow to be the same as the picture. The plug (starter) plant picture is used to give you an idea of the size and may not be exactly the same plant.
