(Capscium baccatum) Popular seasoning hot peppers from Peru. Very rare and hard to find outside of South America. Robust plants are about 2′ tall and covered with 2″ long fruits that ripen to bright yellow. When cut, they really do smell and taste like lemons. Fruits are excellent for drying and have only 10-15 seeds per fruit. Expect an uncommon amount of fruit from this plant. Hot, 100 days from transplant.
