Sources for "aji dulce" in Toronto?

Dracodl | Jan 30, 2010 08:02 AM

I posted a query for the sweet version of Capsicum chinense used in the Caribbean for "sofrito" (pictures attached) in the Caribbean forum, but I'd love to find this chile in Toronto. Looks like a bonnet pepper but is very mild and sweet. Excellent in rice, beans, stews and --as mentioned-- in "sofrito". It's name in Spanish is "ají dulce" (sweet chile). Has anyone seen it anywhere in Toronto?
