Spanish Description: Indispensable para esos frijoles negros estilo cubano, hechos en casa o para realzar los enlatados. Agregue justo un par de ajicitos y el sabor de su plato se dispara!. El aji cachucha es un pequeño pimiento que no pica y es algo dulce.Se usa en muchos platos tradicionales cubanos. Tambien se le llama aji dulce. Los ajicitos se maduran a un palido verde a un amarillo rojizo. No debe confundirse con el aji habanero que si es muy picante. Congele los que le sobre para usar posteriormente.
Quantity in Basket: None


A must for those Cuban Style black beans, homemade or canned. Just add a couple of CACHUCHA peppers and the flavor soars. Aji Cachucha is a small mild, sweet-tasting pepper used in many traditional Cuban dishes. It is also sometimes known as Aji Dulce. The pods ripen from a light pale green to a yellow/orange. Don't confuse this pepper with the habanero, which looks very similar and is related, as although it has the Habanero flavour,but not the heat.

Freeze left over peppers for later use.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frijoles just aren't the same without them...., 5.7.2013
Reviewer: Vanessa Benitez (Miami, FL)

I am first generation Cuban-American and a native Miamian and I have to disagree with Nancy. I have seen the supposed "aji cachucha" sold in stores , and those are NOT aji cachucha but a spicier pepper. Real aji cachucha is hard to come by in stores and you either know someone who has a plant, buy a plant from a small market grower, or you grow them yourself from seed. The real aji cachucha are sweet and have a delightful almost smokey flavor they add to the frijoles. Much like culantro (which is now FINALLY available in stores) you used to be VERY lucky to know someone who had access to these beauties. I LOVE aji cachucha!

Reviewer: Helen Oneill (Citra, FL)

Wow Cachucha really is great in any Latin cooking but a friend just introduced me to the Venezuelan Aji Dulce and heirloom pepper that is absolutely addictive! It looks like a habanero, smells like a habaner but when you bite into it -- amazing NO heat! only a sweet fruity taste with a spicy overtone. Thus the name the Sweet Habanero! Cannot wait to find more -- maybe this can be added to the CM's product line. If anyone knows where to find this fantastic pepper let us know.

Cachucha peppers are NOTthe same as ajicitos dulces. I live in Miami and buy cachucha peppers all the time because I cannot find ajicitos dulces. However, be aware that Cachucha peppers are a little bit spicy and do not have the same sweet flavor of ajicitos dulces.

Reviewer: Sandra (Vallejo, CA)

I'm a displaced New Yorker living in California for 23 years. The few visits I've made to NYC and Miami always left a lingering taste in my mouth for traditional seasoning. When I saw these "ajis dulce" my heart jumped for joy! My question is, will you soon be getting "culantro" to complete the duo???


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cachucha is amazing!, 11.2.2010
Reviewer: Carol Stevens (In the Everglades, FL)

I am an avid South Florida cook. We do Cajun and Cuban cooking mostly and I couldn't live without my cachuchas. They also make a great pickled relish for sandwiches! My neighbor adds it to a soft cheese spread for a delightful change. And yes, that is a great deal being that they are unusual. And then you have seeds too for next season!
