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? Prolific, long lasting

What are the cons? prolific to the extreme

Review:

Not much to add to this discussion, but anyone who thinks these plants are limited to only two feet tall must only be growing them in pots or in poor soil. They grow quickly from seed. They are a little slower to mature than some peppers, but once they get going, they don't stop producing 'till they freeze. And they seem to be more cold tolerant than most. They will keep trying to flower and fruit 'till the bitter end, so it's important to prune new growth as the season winds down if you want to maximize your harvest, rather than let the plant keep sinking energy into producing new fruit that will not mature in time.

Review:

Love these peppers. Started these peppers 18 months ago. They grew slowly last year, and didn't produce anything useful. I just brought them inside over the winter, and replanted them into a clump in a planter this spring. It is the end of September, and I just harvested them. Great peppers! Look good, smell great, and that Lemony taste! The bit from the pepper seems to linger on the tip of the tongue, and not farther back in the mouth. Hot, but reasonably so. Not running for the milk hot, very nice. Sometimes peppers are so hot, that it overpowers the actual taste. The lemon in this is really something. Cant wait until later this week when I will use some in making Chicken Chili. I am going to grow a lot more of these next year!

Review:

This plant seems to like more fertilizer than other peppers I've grown. This was my first year building the soil where I'm renting though, so you may need to check other reviews on fertilization needs. I did use mainly liquid kelp, homemade compost, epsom salt. The taste is pretty good with a citrus kick. It's a very lively taste. This pepper is tough and harder to kill than all other peppers I have grown. These are growing around 1.5 - 2 ft tall for me and branch out pretty good (make sure you top these for added branching). I eat these like candy by themselves. They are hot though, but if you are used to peppers, these are tasty by themselves or to have 3 or four alongside dinner.

What are the pros? Beautiful plant

Review:

This was the first hot pepper I ever grew. It's a beautiful plant especially when those pretty yellow peppers hang like lanterns. The taste is hot , but there's a hint of citrus that makes it great for sauces that have tomato. I'll be growing this one for a long time.

Review:

This is one of my favorite peppers to grow. Every year i grow about 9 varieties of pepper plants and this is one of my favorite. It is produces a lot of pepper pods and they are big pods too. It is citrusy, with a pungent flavor, and has quite a bit of heat. I am used to growing hotter peppers though, like Habanero varieties so the heat in these peppers are quite tolerable to me. These pods can be dried out without a dehydrator much like Cayenne peppers can, which is a plus because this plant does produce a lot of fruit and you'll need a way to preserve them. They are great pickle preserved too. This is just a great overall pepper plant. Good to make hot sauce with too. I highly recommend!!!
