The Ring of Fire Cayenne is a newer improved variety with earlier and more productive plants. Cayenne is a very popular pepper for adding heat to dishes without adding a distinct pepper flavor. Can be used fresh in hot sauces, ground as a powder in chocolate cookies, or as pepper flakes on pizza. The thin flesh on this pepper makes them excellent for drying. These pencil-thin peppers are 4” long with smooth, bright red color and great flavor. Plants are 18” tall and yield heavy sets of fiery peppers. Great for short seasons.

Capsicum annuum (60 days) Heat Level: Extra Hot Scoville 50,000   Heirloom / Open-pollinated / Non- GMO                             

Packet contains 10 seeds. 

In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 24” apart or into large 3-gallon containers. Harvest chiles when they are red. 


All of our seeds are GMO-free.

Flavorful, Spicy, Productive

I’ve been searching for a flavorful, spicy (50,000 SHU minimum) cayenne pepper for eating raw, roasting, dehydrating into powder or making hot sauce, and this pepper fits it all! Every seed germinated, the plants grew very well and had lots of peppers. Little no disease problems either. Peppers were spicy and delicious in all those applications I mentioned. Will certainly be growing again!

Love those RING IF FIRE peppers

This seed takes patience to germinate but the final plants give and give right through light frosts in Vermont’s fall. Every plant produces at least a hundred gorgeous peppers. My husband loves hot and these don’t disappoint!

Easy to grow

No problems with germination and the plants are productive. Third year growing these, and they are now a staple in our garden. Easy to dry for long term storage. Nice and spicy, great flavor.

Best ever hot pepper

My husband is a fussy hot pepper guy. I had some seasons of disappointment with peppers from other companies that were so so. Finally with Ring of Fire from Sandia I have a a pepper hot enough to make him sweat and smile all through the summer. He can eat them green or red and they have the punch he loves.

Good and hot

Very prolific plants. Excellent for drying then grinding to sprinkle on many foods. 2 plants give me a years worth of chilis. I grow these every year!
