Heat Level (Scoville Rating)
Medium (20,000-30,000 SHU)
Aji Cristal chillies usually grow and mature to around 7-10 centimetres and are straight or have a slight curve to the pods and are conical and elongated. When young the skin is somewhat wrinkled and light green, maturing to a pale yellow and finally onto orange/red. The medium-thick skin and flesh are crisp and juicy, when tasted they have a faint citrus flavour. It is favoured to harvest the chillies when they are still immature and light green as the heat is less intense. When they finally mature to orange-red the heat will develop along with the citrus flavour that also carries a smokier fruit taste.

The plants themselves grow to around 60-90 cm if grown in a 30cm pot but can exceed 100 cm if grown in larger pots or in the ground. The Aji Cristal is from the Capsicum Baccatum variety which is one of the lesser cultivated species, however, they are highly prolific producers.

Let customers speak for us
From the moment the cute seed box arrives at your door, until the seedling pop up to say hello...they never disappoint. I've purchased a few different boxes of seeds and know they'll not be my last! Thank you 🐞🌸
I already have baby craspedia seedlings and can't wait to see them grow. I bought a couple of craspedia plants last year and they produce the most lovely yellow pom poms. They look great dotted in three's around the house and I also use them when I make dried wreaths.
This was gifted to my mum for her birthday and she loves it. You've got everything you need for flower pressing, including all instructions.
Nicely packaged and fast delivery
One of our favourites in the range. Balanced subtle tones, good burn time and will definitely buy again. Matt

Top quality seeds and so beautifully presented - I bought them for myself but it was like receiving a gorgeous gift!
Great service, prompt delivery and beautifully packaged. It was for a gift so not tried them but they look lovely.
I am happy to give a 5 star review for Bishy Barnabee’s Cottage Garden Flower and Herb Box.
I loved receiving the beautiful package of seeds, with some dried flowers enclosed and not an ounce of plastic in sight!
All thoughtfully eco friendly wrapped.
The delivery was super quick and I’m working my way through sewing the seeds, on the monthly instructions contained on each packet.
I think any of the seed boxes would make a beautiful gift or why not treat yourself!
I’ll certainly be buying more as I expand my cut flower garden 🌸🐞
Another beautifully presented gift box of seeds delivered quickly and professionally presented. I bought as a gift for a friend who was delighted. I will definitely be back again.
I was so pleased to receive this box of seeds, beautifully presented with a lovely little dried flower to add a special touch, thank you, can’t wait to get started on sowing them .
I can’t rate these seeds highly enough! Germination was super fast and baby plants are lovely and strong. Looking forward to a flower filled 2023 , and will definitely be ordering lots more goodies from Bbcg x
