Lemonella (Capsicum chinense)

A very attractive habanero chilli that produces masses of wrinkled fruit that hang down from under the branches. The fruit, which start green and ripen to a lemon yellow, have an elongated shape with a bulge in the middle, and slightly pointed at the tip. They measure around 15 x 45mm. They are thin-fleshed (making them easy to dry), very fruity flavoured and hot. What’s not to like?

A “stand-out and notice me” variety that is a distinctive addition to our ever-increasing habanero collection.
