Hot LEmmon Pepper Story
Capsicum baccatum or also known as Hot Lemon Pepper is a rare chile pepper from Ecuador. This pepper has been grown in localized parts of Ecuador for thousands of years and only recently became known in the United States and Europe. Still today it is not commercially grown meaning that if you want to try this unique pepper you will need to grow it in your Rise Garden. Once you do you will be able to try this pepper that is as spicy as Cayenne but without the lingering burn. More importantly you will be able to taste a spicy pepper that has a complex fruity flavor similar to lemons, and a color to match. If you aren't afraid of heat this pepper is for you.
