Peruvian pepper with flavorful bright heat.

Collected in one of the vibrant farmers markets in Lima, the seeds of this unusual hot pepper found their way into the hands of William Woys Weaver and the Roughwood Seed gardens. According to Weaver, the bright lemon yellow color and waxy citrus-like texture of this pepper, originally known as Aji Lima, inspired name changes from Lima, to Liman, to Lemon Drop. With exceptional flavor and cayenne-range heat, this pepper spices a dish without overwhelming it and makes a striking yellow hot sauce.

Its habit is incredibly vigorous, forming big, tall, strongly upright plants that are naturally lush. Each plant tends to bear heavily (one plant is plenty for the home gardener!), its branches laden with dozens of small, waxy-skinned fruit that turn from light green in mid-season to golden yellow at ripeness. The flavor of each is exceptional: truly citrusy and suitable for spicing a dish without overwhelming it. If you like a bit of heat, one pepper is enough for a pot of chili; use more if you are a fiend

Lemon Drop takes a few weeks longer to mature than your average garden pepper, but it's well worth the wait!

Meet the Makers

Hudson Valley Seed Co is the best source for heirloom and open-pollinated garden seeds and beautiful garden-themed contemporary art. They are a values-driven seed company that practices and celebrates responsible seed production and stewardship. They have our own certified organic farm in upstate New York where they produce much of what they sell. 

The folks at Hudson Valley Seed Company are both farmers and storytellers who are committed to growing organically, sourcing locally and sustainably, and preserving crop diversity by selecting unique, rare, and hard-to-find varieties. Every seed in their catalog is open pollinated, many are heirloom and organic, and they are never GMO.  They believe that a seed is more than meets the eye: it is a time capsule telling tales of the plants, crops, and people that came before us, and they work with a range of artists as diverse as their seeds to pass those stories down to present and future gardeners.
