Lemon Drop Chilli (Capsicum baccatum)
Lemon Drop Chilli (Capsicum baccatum): beautiful and spicy variety from Ecuador. The pointed chillis are up to 12 cm long, and display a bright yellow colour. Its flavour is intense and very spicy, whether harvested green and consumed cooked, or harvested when ripe for drying; they can also be reduced to powder after drying and used as spice on recipes which will add colour and flavour to dishes. It adapts well to pot cultivation; the plant is very productive.
It requires at least 6 hours of direct light per day on the balcony, or full sun exposure if cultivated on the ground.
