We had a great time at our Hot Pepper Tasting Party in Castle Rock, Colorado with Yosh, Siri and Matt – who all bravely tried all the super hot peppers...
Aji Limo / Lemon Drop
Aji Limo - One of the most flavorful of the Andean peppers has survived from pre-Columbian times. Its distinctive citrus flavor and the bright yellow pods immediately bring to mind the crisp aromas of lemons and limes. This pepper is extremely spicy, but when it’s tempered by cooking in sweet-flavored salsas, the lemony taste is dynamite and it is truly citrusy. Raw and finely chopped this pepper adds flavor, color and heat to ceviches.
The prolific plants are also hard to kill, so they're perfect for first time pepper growers!
It bears heavily, with dozens of small, waxy-skinned fruit that turn from light green to golden yellow at ripeness. This pepper has a long growing season and produces well into the cooler months. Small 24” plants and 2“ pods. Commonly known as Lemon Drop pepper. Capsicum baccatum (100 days)
Heat Level: Very Hot Scoville 15,000 - 30,000
