Aji Limon, or, Lemon Drop peppers (Capsicum Baccatum) are an ancient heirloom pepper from Peru that have survived from pre-Columbian times.
These peppers are hot! (15,000-30,000 Scoville Units) and they have a wonderful citrusy lemon/lime flavor. While the peppers are quite spicy, the heat is short-lived and doesn't tend to linger on the palette.
Ají Limon plants are compact but produce dozens of fruits per plant. These are some of the easiest peppers that we've grown and they thrive in most types of soil.
We like to eat these peppers in stir-fries where the citrusy flavor can stand out and they also make wonder hot pepper powder when dried and ground.
