Yellow Lemon Drop Peppers are a tasty, hot, and extremely prolific pepper variety. Like most in the Aji family, these pepper plants originated in Peru but are now enjoyed across the world! Watch them grow up to 3 ft. tall and produce hundreds of wonderful, thin-walled pods that stretch between 2-3" long! These skinny pepper pods ripen from green to bright yellow at maturity and have an almost crinkly skin. This medium hot pepper heat is similar to a Serrano or Cayenne, but with a tangy citrus flavor that goes great with chicken and fish dishes. Aji Lemon Drop peppers are also great for making delicious powder, flakes, salsas, and hot sauces.

  • Seedling Size: 4-6"
  • Species: Capsicum Baccatum
  • Heat Level: 15,000-30,000 SHUs

They’re my healthiest plants

I bought several seedlings this year, but only two from Pepper Joe’s. While the rest of them are very sadly producing fruit but not looking at all healthy, the PJ’s peppers have grown larger and have only JUST started producing flower buds. They are just all-over healthier, happier plants. Looking forward to harvesting some lemon drops this fall!

Healthy seedlings

Received two healthy lemon drop seedlings, with roots wrapped in a wool starter to keep them moist. Treated them gently at first. They’ve grown great!

Great Yield and Flavor

These took about 100 days to actually start ripening but once it did it was great. Amazing yield and flavor was great. Will order again.
