The yellow Lemon variety is less well known than its green brother. The plants are very fertile and mature quite quickly for a Jalapeño.
This Jalapeño originated from a breeding project that started in 1995 at the New Mexico State University (NuMex) at the Chile Pepper Institute. They also created two others in this project called Orange and Pumpkin Spice. The original crossing was done with the Permagreen sweet pepper and the Early Jalapeño. The Chile Pepper Institute has always been successful in creating peppers with new colors.
Now there are many other colored Jalapeño varieties in the world, but usually they do not keep the color until the end of the ripening stages. The color of this species remains, making them unique.
