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
