Heavy producer of lemon yellow, citrusy tasting, hot peppers…

70 to 75 days. Heirloom from Peru. OP. Also called Lemon Drop. Oh, how I love these little devils! Plants grow bushy and produce loads of bright yellow, 2″ long hot peppers that have a distinctive citrusy flavor. The heat is farely scorching at the bottom tips, but mellows out considerably further up the pepper. I cut off and discard the bottom of the pepper, the seeds, and the membranes when using it to season food for heat challenged folks. The flavor is delightful in anything that you would like to have hot pepper and lemon in: fish, chicken, rice, salsa, etc. Makes a fantastic and bright yellow hot sauce.

Within 24 hours of receiving your order, we will e-mail you with a shipping date that we choose based on your last frost date. You are welcome to change the date to any other shipping week. Just respond to the e-mail and tell us when you want your plants. Our first shipping date is late March, weather permitting. We will not have plants available before then.

Our plants are sustainably raised in our own potting mix. We use only organic fertilizers and sprays if needed. We have been growing and selling plants since 1997.

Our plants are shipped in individual 3″ deep pots, and are ready to be planted out in your garden.

We package our plants with extreme care so they arrive undamaged at your doorstep. Each plant is tucked into its own padded sleeve. The soil in each pot is covered so it will not spill out. A plant tag identifying the variety is included with each plant.

We ship every Monday and Tuesday, from late March through May, according to your location or your request. We currently ship to every state except Hawaii and Alaska.
