Peppers have been in cultivation in South America for many thousands of years and when Spanish and Portuguese explorers arrived they spread the seeds throughout the New World. This particular variety is believed to be named after the Cayenne River, deep in the rain forest. This vigorous, upright-growing plant will be approximately 2 feet tall and will produce a great many 4-6" long peppers with a wrinkly texture to the skin. The young fruit will be emerald green and then ripen to a vivid red. These peppers deliver quite a bit of heat; they have a heat level of 30,000 to 50,000 SHU (Scoville Heat Units). Please use caution when cleaning this and other peppers, the juice can cause skin burn. Cleaning under running water or wearing rubber gloves is recommended. The thin skin on this Cayenne pepper makes it exceptional for pickles and slicing fresh but also remains hot and flavorful when dried or canned.

Days To Maturity: 70-75
