A stunning burst of fruity flavor and vibrant color makes this our most exciting new hot pepper! This colorful new “heirloom” was introduced by New Mexico State University. A sunny lemon yellow variety, it was bred using natural backcrossing techniques, resulting in an extra spicy and super eye-catching fruit. The Numex series was created in response to America’s increasing appreciation for eating a rainbow of nutrition. Super ornamental and extremely prolific, well adapted to the hot, dry New Mexican climate. This variety has major eye appeal and stands out in salsas and other fresh prepartations; the color is stunning and really pops. Edible landscaping is a breeze with lemon spice; the sturdy plants are covered in bright globes. Great for mixed bed or container planting. Thanks to Jim Duffy of Refining Fire Chilis for bringing this exciting new find to our attention!
