The million dollar question: How to tell if a pepper is spicy or sweet? Find a toothpick and enjoy our video above!
Aha! peppers are a cross between Habanada and Aji Dulce — two brilliantly tropical, citrusy-sweet peppers — Aha, get it?!! — and Friends, we learned (the hilariously hard way!) that though heat is the dominant trait of peppers, the genes affecting heat may be either ‘turned off’ or turned so far ‘down’ as to taste sweet. Turned off, the next generation is sweet; turned down, the gene is still ‘on’ and thus the next generation is, frankly, flaming hot. Long story short (and we can’t wait to share more!), what began as a ‘sweet pepper project’ has turned into three distinct peppers: one hot, one not and one that is, well, quite the combination. Organic Aha! 80/20 Sweet & Spicy is that combination, it’s true ~
Organic Aha! 80/20 Sweet & Spicy Peppers mature quickly even in cool, short seasons and are a delicious bridge moving beyond the industrial, fixed-trait plant expectations of our time. Aha! 80/20 Sweet & Spicy v.1 is the first generation (v.1 = version 1) of the cross with many, many more to come! We save their seeds — so can you, we hope you do! — and so can your great-great-great grandchildren, too ~
