The Lemon Drop is a hot, citrus like-flavored pepper which is a popular seasoning pepper in Peru, where it is known as Kellu Uchu. It is also known in the anglophone world as ‘Hot lemon’ or ‘Lemon Drop’. The bright yellow, crinkled, cone-shaped fruits are about 2½” long and 1/2″ wide and mature from green to yellow approximately 100 days after transplanting (Long season), they have fewer seeds than the average pepper, containing 15 seeds on average. The plant is vine like, typically reaching a height of about 3 ft. Like other baccatum species, these peppers were practically unknown in the West until the early 1990s but are now gaining wide-scale popularity.
