Habanero Lemon, also known as Yellow Habanero, is a lantern-shaped chili that matures from green to lemon yellow. The pods grow to about 5 cm long and 2.5 cm wide, and have a distinctive fruity and citrusy taste (and, according to some, even an apricot-like aroma). Let’s talk about spiciness: our yellow friend doesn’t exceed the capsaicin level of the average habanero, registering at about 100,000–300,000 on the Scoville scale. But that’s a lot! Named after the city of La Havana in Cuba, these peppers are most likely to have originated in the Amazon region, although they are very popular in the Caribbean.

Although peppers are self-pollinating plants, pollinators will increase fruit set.
Grow companion plants that attract ladybirds to prevent aphid attacks.
