"(NuMex) A stunning burst of fruity flavor and vibrant color makes this a super exciting new hot pepper! This colorful jalapeño was introduced by New Mexico State University. A sunny lemon yellow variety, it was bred using natural backcrossing techniques, resulting in fruity tasting, super eye-catching fruit. The NuMex series was created in response to America’s increasing appreciation for eating a rainbow of nutrition. Super ornamental and extremely prolific, these peppers produced huge harvests! This variety has major eye appeal and stands out in salsas and other fresh preparations; the color is stunning and really pops. Edible landscaping is a breeze with Lemon Spice; the sturdy plants are covered in sunny color. Great for mixed-bed or container planting. Thanks to Jim Duffy of Refining Fire Chiles for bringing this exciting new find to our attention!"
