Yellow Lemon Drop Pepper aka Hot Lemon Seeds

Size

Also known as Kellu Uchu in Peru or Aji Lemon Drop, you’ll never get tired of growing the Lemon Drop with their surprising spicy, citrus, tangy flavors! Not only are their flavors amazing for many culinary meals, but the Aji Limon pepper is also an unforgettable ornamental plant that you’ll want to stare at all day long in your garden. The 3-foot tall Hot Lemon pepper plant heavily produces gorgeous, crinkly, thin-walled pods that will ripen from green to clear lemon yellow, and sometimes to dark purple blush. The Aji Limo peppers will grow to 2-3 inches long with very few seeds. The Lemon Drop pepper Scoville is between 15,000-30,000 SHUs so you’ll notice a medium-heat punch when you eat it raw, a heat similar to the Cayenne, Serrano, or Tabasco.

It does have a hint of lemon and citrus, making it ideal for chicken, fish and seafood meals. The Aji Lemon pepper also makes a delicious pepper powder, flakes, salsas, and hot sauces.

Fun Fact:The Lemon Drop chili is very popular in Peru as a tangy seasoning for meals and snacks. Its name means “Lima Pepper’ which is referring to the Peruvian city.

True to type, lot's of production

I agree with the previous reviewer, everything grew perfect for me last year. Maybe their 2019 batch was bad? But 2020 OHHHHHHHHH YEAH!

Sexy little peppers

I dont know what people are talking about 0% germination rate. 9/10 of my seeds germinated and grew into healthy heavily producing plants. (Potted and brought inside for the winter. Toledo, ohio). Must be user error because these were super easy to grow. True to description.. They have about the same heat maybe a little hotter than my red cayennes but smell sweet and have have a citrusy flavor. Producing at only about a foot tall.

I LOVE THIS PEPPER

Beautiful loads of bright yellow peppers, very hot, they definitely have a hint of citrus to them! They made a beautiful fermented sauce for me. Plan to grow again in zone 5.

This is one of my favorite peppers to grow. Plants always produce lots of flavorful peppers with a good heat level.
