Item details

An old heirloom variety native to Peru! Capsicum baccatum. (20,000-60,000 SHU)
Organically Home Grown. Open Pollinated.

Bush-like plants produce an abundance of 3-4 inch fruits that start off green and ripen to an electric lemon yellow.

They have a clean, bright, citrus flavor that is very unique. They are quite hot too! Unlike any peppers I have grown to date. Make a lovely addition to salsas and delicious hot sauce too!

These were some of my hardiest, most productive plants in my 2017 garden. They kept producing after many other plants died off for the season--even tolerated a few frosts. (Zone 6)

Growing tips:

Start indoors 6-8 weeks before average last frost. Harden off in a sheltered location outdoors before transplanting into garden. Transplant seedlings after danger of frost has passed when soil has warmed to over 55 degrees. These tend to mature into bush like plants, so give seedlings adequate room between plants. Overcrowding can lead to a variety of problems including powdery mildew and various fungal diseases.

Great selection for shorter growing seasons. Some pest and disease tolerance.
