Lemon Drop Pepper

NEW - 100 days--(C. baccatum) Seasoning pepper from Peru ripens to a clear lemon yellow, sometimes with a dark purple blush. The flavor is a very clean, uncomplicated, slightly citrus-y heat. 2-foot plants are covered with the thin-walled, conical fruits which reach 2-3 inches in length, with very few seeds. Also known as Aji Limon.

What are the pros? Unique flavor

What are the cons? poor germination rate

Review:

This pepper does not have a good germination. However, it is delicious,beautiful, and freezes perfectly. Each plant produces literally hundreds of peppers. We have grown it for years after finding one for sale at the Farmers Market in Olympia. It grows around 3 1/2 feet high and wide. I do need to stake mine. By the time I put ours outside last year it was already covered in tiny little peppers. This is the pepper I use when I want medium heat with a delicately flavored dish. It compliments both vegetarian and chicken dishes, and fruits until after first few frosts in fall. It has a unique citrusy flavor which does not overpower. I will always grow this pepper.

What are the pros? Prolific, Flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

I worried that this little plant would not take off as I had neglected it some. Boy was I wrong! This plant is still giant (January) and producing like crazy! The flavor is awesome, just like they say, citrusy but with heat. Makes great pepper jelly and hot sauce.

What are the pros? Flavor, Abundence

What are the cons? A little slow growing

Review:

AMAZING flavor for salsas and chicken dishes. One plant gave us more peppers than we knew what to do with. Hot pepper, but not too extreme (it's about twice that of a jalapeno). At the end of the season, I dried the remaining peppers, even the greenish ones, and made pepper flakes for cooking (YUM!). We did only a fair amount of full sun, in the climate of Northern Oregon, and these still grew great--although a bit late fruiting as a result. A must for years to come.

What are the pros? Delicious, worth the wait.

What are the cons? Slow to grow at first

Review:

I purchased seeds here when these first were marketed after reading an article about them. They were very slow and like warm soil. After we moved I transferred the plant to the ground where it took off! It lasted 2 years! I gathered many 5 gal buckets of gorgeous bright yellow peppers! I saved seed, and will grow them again! By far our favorite hot pepper, and we pickled them, added them to foods, fermented them-- which is the best method! Then after the ferment, give them a whirl in your Ninja to make the absolute most tasty hot sauce. Sadly they froze in our bizarre winter we had. Highly recommend! They are very different. We are hooked! Sammi-- from The Tiny House Project!
