*This is a rare white form of the Ají Limo pepper which, like its other colours, is sometimes known as a “Hot Lemon”. Yet, despite the similar name, it bears no known relation to the Habanero Hot Lemon.
**This value represents the heat rating that I would expect to give to a sauce using this pepper as its main ingredient. Other ingredients or particularly high purity may result in a slightly stronger sauce, while lower concentrations will yeild a weaker one and other products may vary.
