These came from a farmer’s market in Atlanta and I keep them in my freezer in a zip lock bag. They do not photograph well in the bag so I took them out to snap the photo. As you can see they turn red, yellow and/or orange as they mature. I make sofrito with them but I also like to put them whole in the stews. Once in a while I come across one that is a bit more spicy than sweet and I’ve read that it may be due to out-crossing with other hot pepper plants. Also, since they look so much like the habanero peppers, I found a few of those hot ones in my bag. I didn’t know they had been thrown in there until I cut one open and the heat vapor brought tears to my eyes. I’ll have to be more careful next time I pick a bag of ají dulce.
