Seeds: 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.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.If you like a bit of heat, one pepper is enough for a pot of chili; use more if you are a fiend.
Specific: Capsicum baccatum.
