Grower Information:

This heirloom from Ecuador has a spicy aroma and is best fresh, in sauces or for drying. Hot Lemon’s 3- to 4-in. (8- to 10-cm) fruits ripen to yellow, but are also very flavorful when green. The skin is tender and the aroma is spicy with a hint of pine woods. As hot as any Cayenne, these peppers have a truly unique flavor. Plant in full sun and keep well watered. The more you harvest, the more your plants will produce!
