Aji Limo / Lemon Drop
Aji Limo – One of the most flavorful of the Andean peppers has survived from pre-Columbian times. Its distinctive citrus flavor and the bright yellow pods immediately bring to mind the crisp aromas of lemons and limes. This pepper is extremely spicy, but when it’s tempered by cooking in sweet-flavored salsas, the lemony taste is dynamite and it is truly citrusy. Raw and finely chopped this pepper adds flavor, color and heat to ceviches.
The prolific plants are also hard to kill, so they’re perfect for first time pepper growers!
