Zanthoxylum acanthopodium - Lemon Pepper

Choose Plant Height: -

  • A rarely offered Zanthoxylum species that is native in SW Asia. Zanthoxylum acanthopodium has thorny leaves and fruits with a strong lemony scent, therefore when used as a pepper substitute, like its relative, the Sechuan Pepper, it gives a lemonier flavour. The Lemon Pepper is a very quirky looking, thorny shrub with slightly hairy, composite, soft leaves. The trunk on older plants are covered in thorns which do not drop off but grow with the plant, becoming a showy feature.
    Almost with no peduncle, the many small, red fruits sit tight on the branches on the female plants (needs both male and female for viable seeds but females may fruit without a male), making the plant look incredibly ornamental in Autumn. It makes an excellent patio plant, where on hot summer days its lemony scent can be greatly appreciated. Suitable for smaller gardens, by a wall or in a border.

  • The intended main use of this plant is to grow food for human consumption. We always recommend further research to learn the different ways in which the food source can be prepared and consumed.
