CAPSICUM BACCATUM

Aji Lemon Chilli, Capsicum Baccatum, is originally from Ecuador or Peru.  Also known under various other names:  Aji Limon, Lemon Drop or Hot Lemon Chilli.

The plant grows to about 1 meter in a pot and would grow bigger if you plant it in the ground. The fruits ripen from green to a pure lemon yellow. The pods are small and measure 5 – 7 cm long and if you dry this chilli, it becomes wrinkled and tapered.

The fruit has a strong citrus overtone which goes really well with seafood, stir fries or Thai food to give that citrus hint of flavour.

The Aji Lemon Chilli is a beautiful plant and an awesome producer. 

Flavour wise: Really fruity and citrus like taste

Heat level:  7-8/15
