Lemon Spice Jalapeno Seeds
This is a vibrant yellow variety of the classic jalapeño pepper, developed by the Chile Pepper Institute at New Mexico State University. Known for its eye-catching bright yellow color when ripe, the Lemon Spice Jalapeño maintains the heat level of a traditional green jalapeño, but with a citrus undertone that adds a unique twist to its flavor profile.
This pepper was created through natural breeding techniques, which involved crossing an Early Jalapeño with a bell pepper known as Permagreen. The result is a pepper that starts off green and matures to a brilliant yellow, providing not only visual appeal but also a spicy, fruity flavor that enriches any dish.
The Lemon Spice Jalapeño is praised for its high yields and is described as having medium-to-thick walls. This variety’s unique color and flavor profile make it an excellent choice for enhancing dishes like salsas or nachos, as well as for adding ornamental value to gardens and container plantings.
