Cayenne pepper is a kitchen standby, and it comes from this easy-to-grow plant. The elongated peppers are borne in profusion, but if you get too many, you can always try your hand at drying them to make your own cayenne pepper. When eaten fresh, you'll find cayenne peppers to be medium-hot, but they can be super-hot, especially if you include the seeds. As a heavy bearer that most home gardeners cultivate with ease, you'll find this variety super-economical of time, space, and effort.

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Growing peppers is easy, so direct sowing is usually fine, but for good control over your germination conditions, sowing in trays is usually a better bet. A light covering soil is all these seeds need. Then water well and only repeat when you see the soil surface starting to dry out.

    How to Harvest

    As soon as your peppers look big enough to eat, you can start to harvest them. If you want red peppers, leave them on the vine until they colour up. Cut them off with a sharp pair of scissors, secateurs or a knife to avoid damage to the fruit or the plant.
