Lemon Drop Pepper

(C. baccatum) 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 citrusy 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? Productive, easy, tasty

What are the cons? none

Review:

Got over 90% germination from fresh seed last year; took a bit long, but still got excellent germination this winter as well. These should be started a bit earlier than jalapeno, banana, or sweet peppers. The 4 plants last year produced so well that I have around 2 cups of dried lemon peppers in a jar, and gave a few bags away to friends. This pepper is very spicy, with a complex aroma when chopped fresh. Never add the fresh peppers to an empty frying pan without first opening a window: the chemicals cook off easily and the fumes are dangerous. Add the fresh peppers to sauces, salsas, and marinades when you want lots of heat and flavor, with very little 'pepper' taste. This is my recommendation for seasoning grilled fish and chicken because the mild fruity taste and complex aroma go great with mild fish or chicken. Cook fresh, or preserve this gourmet delicacy by canning or by drying with an herb dryer; they quickly shrivel if refrigerated.

What are the pros? Easy to find and pick

What are the cons? Really late maturity

Review:

I grew these for the first time in 2018. They were very easy to start and grow. I don't know if it was the summer weather but these and my Tabasco didn't start to set and mature until September. Last year I was picking Tabasco peppers in July. The plants were very prolific once they got going. The yellow peppers were easy to find. Good heat, made really good salsas.

What are the pros? Prolific and showy

What are the cons? Sprawling shape

Review:

I've grown this pepper in south La. for two seasons. Very happy with the amount of peppers it puts out! The heat is about equal to a jalape?o. Made a smoked hot sauce that's very nice too. It' s a pretty nice variety and I recommend it to others often. -Father Earth

What are the pros? Pretty peppers

What are the cons? Slow ripening

Review:

These are great spicy peppers. I did not taste any lemon. I only actually felt the heat with no taste. However, they make the perfect house sauce with a lingering burn. There are probably 50 peppers on 2 plants right now, but they are not ripening. They did nothing all summer, but now are exploding with peppers. I think it was our unusual weather and hurricanes though, because all of my peppers did the same this year. I'll overwinter them because they are so abundant and cute. Lol
