LEMON DROP (yellow/100 days) [SHU 15,000-30,000]. The country of origin for this pepper is Peru where it’s a popular seasoning with a distinct citrus note.  Bright yellow, crinkled, cone- shaped fruits are 2" long x 1/2" wide.  Dense plants grow to 2’ high x 2’ wide, and are typically covered with neon-bright fruits, making this an excellent choice for container gardening.  A MUST use for this pepper is making up a batch of hot pepper sauce.  This pepper is slow to mature to its brilliant, yellow color but worth the wait!
