Lemon Drop Pepper

SHU: 50,000
Origin: Peru

A bit spicy and a pungent baccatum!  Another Peruvian favorite. Also called the Aji Limon, or Kellu Uchu in Peru.

Similar to the Aji Cito or Aji Pineapple, but, a sharper taste. Very floral and tastes a bit like lemons, especially when cooked. To clear up any confusion relating to similarly spelled pods, check this out.
