Lemon Habanero peppers, also known as Yellow Habaneros, come to us all the way from the Caribbean (with roots most likely originating in the Amazon region), and is an excellent addition to the Pepper Joe's collection!

The Lemon Habanero pepper plant stretches up to 4 ft. tall, producing these 2" long pods that have a very waxy skin. Pods have a lantern shape and bumpy texture that make these peppers look gnarly compared to other habanero varieties. You'll enjoy growing them as they ripen from green to yellow lemon when they reach maturity.

Our Lemon Habanero pepper has the typical fruity and citrusy flavors of all habaneros. It is amazing in chicken, fish, and seafood dishes. The lemon-scented chili also makes a great relish or hot sauce, so if you like growing peppers just for the fun of it or to make salsas and hot sauces, this is the pepper for you! Sometimes, we put it in a baggie and take it with us to restaurants.

Grow peppers with some fierce heat with our Hot Pepper Seeds, Very Hot Pepper Seeds, and Super Hot Pepper Seeds today!

No Go...

It's been about a month & nada...not going to knock PJ's since I've had tremendous success with most all of my seeds. I changed from my usual starting medium & that could be the cause, so no worries. Better luck next time, PJ's is still the best!!

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.
