Originally from Jamaica, you will taste citrus, lemony lime, and fruity tones in this Jamaican Mushroom Yellow pepper! Not only does it have fruity flavors, but it has the heat level of a Scotch Bonnet. The difference is that the Jamaican Yellow Mushroom will grow bigger than the Scotch Bonnet. It grows well in the sun and ripens from green to yellow when mature. The bright yellow mushroom will smell similar to bell peppers, but it is mixed with spice and is perfect for salsas, jerk seasoning, hot sauces, and more! The pepper pods will grow to small, flattened pods, growing to two inches long and resembles the shape of the mushroom when grown.
WARNING: Plants adjust to small, gradual changes in their environment better than sudden shifts, which is what the hardening off process is all about. Just as you get burned when you bare your untanned skin to the sun, leaves of plants started indoors will develop pale, sunburned patches if they are suddenly exposed to too much sun. The story has a happier ending when you introduce seedlings to bright light and sheltered breezes gradually, over a period of one to three weeks.
