Short Story About Us
We had a family gathering for my Dad's 90th Birthday. Our Son-in-law from Texas is in the food service industry and was very impressed with the Aji Lemon Pepper Powder that we made from the peppers we had been growing. He began to cook with the powder for all our guests. He would make sauces as well as use the powder directly in other dishes. He loved the citrus flavoring and that it had a culinary heat that finished after the key flavors of the focused food was enjoyed.
He told us that the rage is the 'Super Hot Peppers' but for those who really enjoy food it is about a 'Culinary Experience' not the flaming heat.
Our personal enjoyment of the intriguing Aji Lemon Yellow pepper and our son-in-law's encouragement inspired us to launch Pepper-Licious, LLC.
At this time, Pepper-Licious is an ohio Cottage Business. That means that we can only sell our peppers and unique product in Ohio.
As all of you from other states show interest in the Culinary Experience of our peppers and other products, we will expand to meet your interests.
Veteran and Woman Owned
We are family owned, married for over thirty-nine years and Tom is a disabled Veteran.
How We Grow
Our growing method is 'organic'. We originally started our peppers with purchased heritage seeds. Now all our production is from our own seeds. All plants are started in a controlled grow-room. Our soil is an organic mix that includes coconut husks. We only use our own blend of organic certified components for our fertilizer.
We are expanding our indoor growing area so that we will have peppers available all year.
Growing the Aji peppers is a pleasurable labor for those who want to enjoy the 'Culinary Experience'. The peppers take between four to six months to flower and fruit.
We look forward to you enjoying the Culinary Experience of our Aji Lemon Yellow Peppers as well as our very special and select Habaneros.... Oh, not to mention our really unique Jams.
