Aji Panca (Capsicum chinense)- The Aji's are a family of peppers mostly native to Peru, Ecuador and Chile. They can be chinense, baccatum or annums. The annum varieties tend to have upfront heat while the others have flavor first with heat at the back end.

I try to grow all plants organically or hydroponically whenever possible. I do not use chemical pesticides and prefer organic pest control and the use of predatory insects.
