Lemon Drop Pepper

(C. chinense) 100 days. 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 like heat. 2-foot plants are covered with the thin-walled, conical fruits which reach 2-3 inches in length, with very few seeds.

What are the pros? Great flavor, very prolific

What are the cons? low germination rate

Review:

My experience with these peppers is maybe a little unusual-- I tried growing them in 2017 but had very few of the seeds germinate, and those that did died in a seedling-massacre-by-kitten mishap, so I gave up on them. It turned out some of them germinated much later than expected (too late to do much with in '17), so I just kept them alive as very small plants through the winter and finally put them outside in May of '18. Finally given a large enough pot these guys went CRAZY. They are at least 4 feet tall, with 40-50 peppers on a plant. The flavor is phenomenal, very sweet and fruity while still having a pleasant but not overwhelming level of heat. I love them, friends love them, I think I'm going to have to try growing these every year (especially if I can overwinter them...)

What are the pros? Very high yield

What are the cons? more heat than taste

Review:

This pepper is unstoppable. It grows like a weed. I had one in about grow out of an old plastic bag by accident. They quickly grew to three and a half feet with a width of about three feet. You get peppers by the truckloads. In the picture it's hard to tell, but the fruits are small and so you end up with hundreds of them. Taste wise? Yikes. They are spot on with the description but I would add that it's more of a white heat. My partner could taste the lemon more than I could. For such a small pepper, unassuming pepper these things are deceivingly hot. It seems to grow very quickly in our hot, humid climate. I made sure to be diligent about pruning these. Once it starts producing fruit you won't want it to get to bushy or you'll have trouble accessing them easily.

What are the pros? Best germination yet for HL

What are the cons? None yet

Review:

Planted 7 seeds due to unreliable germination in the past with this variety, but all of these came up before any of my other peppers! If these come true to type, as my other purchases from Baker Creek have, I will have more than enough of these little guys to season sauce for years to come! The description is accurate. This pepper has a fruity or herbal aroma backed by an intense heat, somewhere between a red Thai pepper and a standard, orange Habanero. They work great when you want heat without any smoky or bell pepper taste that often comes with jalapenos, serranos, Hungarian wax, etc. Baker Creek has an excellent service department. Contact them with any questions or comments within their regular business hours and they will usually respond within 48 hours or less. And I cannot stress enough, their products match up closely with the descriptions given on the seed packets, with very few off-type or diseased seedlings. If you have had bad seeds from other companies, try here!

What are the pros? AMAZING Lemon Flavor

What are the cons? Grows slow in North

Review:

I love this pepper! The lemony flavor is robust and hot. I am very excited to grow this pepper again because I will grow more. There are so many uses. Loved this infused in Avacodo oil with Lime Basil. Ground it is superb to put on fish, salad, pasta. I have infused vodka with these peppers (I used it in pie crust to give it a bit of heat and citrus, drinking it is great too). The yellow color brightens my day!!

What are the pros? excellent lemony with bite

What are the cons? none

Review:

Tried these this year and they deliver! Peppers are incredibly productive with well over a hundred attractive bright-yellow peppers per plant. Fresh peppers chopped add an amazing lemony bite to dishes like fried or baked potatoes, soups, etc. Peppers are easy to de-seed and have thin skin, so they are easy to dry, and they progressively grind into flakes or powder in a food processor. Dried peppers mixed with salt make a great “lemon pepper.” Lemon Drop powder works incredibly well in lemon ginger cookies, keep the lemon zest and add the tingly powder!
