Description

Cayenne Long Slim Chilli Seeds

[90 days to red] This classic cayenne pepper plant produces some of the most elegant hot peppers around. The pepper itself performs nicely in just about any dish where extra heat is desired, offering a heat level around 30,000 to 50,000 SHU.

The plant has an upright habit and tends to need to be staked, as the copious amount of fruit it yields can often cause it to fall over. Although you can use the green peppers, it’s best to wait until they’re fiery red, especially if you’re planning on drying them. It grows well in pots or straight into the ground, but needs a greenhouse or poly tunnel to do well in our climate. Very hardy, bug resistant and are excellent keepers when dried.

Use in any dish that requires the use of hot chillies, dry and ground for cayenne pepper, or use as an added kick to a Bloody Mary or vodka.

Note: If you have access to grow lights and a heated propagator you can start sowing your plants in December and January to give you a head start on the year.
