*This is a citrussy yellow pepper sometimes known as a “Hot Lemon” but, so far as I am aware, it bears absolutely no relation to the similarly named 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.
