70 to 75 days. Heirloom from Peru. OP. Also called Lemon Drop. Oh, how I love these little devils! Plants grow bushy and produce loads of bright yellow, 2" long hot peppers that have a distinctive citrusy flavor. The heat is farely scorching at the bottom tips, but mellows out considerably further up the pepper. I cut off and discard the bottom of the pepper, the seeds, and the membranes when using it to season food for heat challenged folks. The flavor is delightful in anything that you would like to have hot pepper and lemon in: fish, chicken, rice, salsa, etc.
Our plants are sustainably raised in our own potting mix. We use only organic fertilizers and sprays if needed. We have been growing and selling plants since 1997.
Our pepper plants are shipped in individual 3" deep pots. Limons start out small, but grow into large bushes.
We package our plants with extreme care so they arrive undamaged at your doorstep. Each plant is tucked into its own padded sleeve. The soil in each pot is covered so it will not spill out. A plant tag identifying the variety is included with each plant.
We ship every Monday and Tuesday, from late March into June, according to your location or your request.
We currently ship to every state except Hawaii and Alaska.
We are now closed for the 2014 season. Thank you to all of our wonderful customers! We will be back in January, 2015.
We produce all of our own seed, unlike most seed sellers. We never purchase bulk seeds and repackage them. You can be sure that you are getting top quality, healthy, and vigorous seeds from us, and that they were produced by us on our small farm in healthy soil.
We are licensed by the State of Missouri Department of Agriculture to sell plants (license #1931) and seed (license #149045) produced by us. We exceed the Federal minimum germination standards and post our germination test results with each variety
