Hot lemon – ají limo, an amazing chilli plant
Hot lemon – ají limo
I just wanted to share this with you, you may not of grown this before but you still have time to grow it this year you may not get an amzing crop if you just get one, but with a few even starting later in the year you will get an amazing amount of incredibly delicous chillis.
This is a fairly spicy chilli that is not only beautiful but had an incredable critrus taste.
Ive grown this for at least 4 years now and the harvests from a single plant can be amazing is well looked after. Even if you neglect it or start it late in the year it is well worth the space it takes up in a grenehouse or poly tunnel due to its taste and yeild.
These are a couple of pictures from a couple of years back of one of my hot lemon plants as you can see it loaded with chilli’s and this one plant kept me going all year on my citrus chilli kick.
Due to the amount of chilies it produced it i couldn’t physically eat them all fresh as much as i love spicy food it would of caused havoc on my insides. due to the thin walls of the chilli it does dry incredibly well and i managed to produce a nearly full 500ml kilner jar full of chilli flakes from just one plant.
If you have the time/space id highly recommend this plant, if you want to start from seed i’d recommend premier seeds direct as they are super cheap and excellent quality seeds they sell. It’s not one that crops up in garden centers often when they have there plants on but if you do see one give wirl.
Below is a affiliate link, it wont cost you anything extra but it will give me a little kickback that will go to keeping this blog online, all those 0.001pennys add up ha…
I’m so looking forward to eating these fresh again come the back end of the year lets hope for lots of sun : )
All the best
