CHILLI Lemon Drop (Aji Lemon) - 8 Seeds
If you love both citrus tang and peppery spice, then the Lemon Drop chilli is a chili that you must get to know. While it’s hard to find, the lemon drop (also known as Aji Lemon) is growing in popularity, both for eating and as an ornamental chilli due to its golden-yellow color when mature.
The heat is significant without being overbearing, making this - with its lemony tang - a chili that’s perfect for spicier salsas and citrus-based homemade hot sauces. Plus, it’s very popular in its native Peru as a tangy seasoning for meals and snacks.
The chillies start off green and age into a golden-rod yellow. They are a long tapered chilli that tops out about two to three inches in length. The chilli plants also bloom white flowers during the summer months. Best of all, if planted in frostless climates (or in a container that can be brought indoors during winter months), the lemon drop can act as a perennial bloomer. It’s a beautiful plant that adds a burst of bright color to any ornamental garden.
