Item details

Long Thin Red Cayenne Pepper - Organically Grown - Open Pollinated - Heirloom - Min. 15 Seeds
Capsicum Annuum

This popular heirloom variety has been a long time garden favorite. Bushy 2' plants produce an abundance of long thin peppers all summer long. Cayenne peppers are a very versatile chile--ideal for drying, cooking, making hot sauce, or for adding a kick to just about any dish. They are also well known for their medicinal properties.

Peppers turn from dark green to a brilliant red when ripe. These have quite a bit of heat (30,000 - 50,000 SHU) and a rich classic pepper flavor. A relatively early variety compared to a lot of hot peppers I've grown, these seem to do well even in cooler climates. These are a must have for any vegetable garden.

Growing tips:

Start indoors at least 6-8 weeks before average last frost. Germination can take up to a few weeks with hot peppers, so be patient! Harden off in a sheltered location outdoors before transplanting into garden. Carefully transplant seedlings after danger of frost has passed when soil has warmed to over 55 degrees. Transplant shock is very common, so don't be surprised if young plants take a week or two to start looking healthy again. These tend to mature into bush like plants, so plant seedlings at least 2’ apart. Overcrowding can lead to a variety of problems such as powdery mildew and various fungal diseases.

*Note-- Pepper seedlings were the slugs' favorite snack in my 2017 garden. They can decimate young seedlings in no time if not detected.
