A purple variant of the popular cayenne pepper with a little more flavor than the red variety. They are very spicy and quite hot for salsas! Dried cayenne peppers are made into powder and flakes and used to spice up any dish. Used fresh and pickled too.

These rare peppers reach 4-6” long with thin walls. They change color from light green to dark purple and finally deep red when fully mature. The beautiful 18-20” tall plants produce many peppers and grow well in containers.  

Capsicum annuum (85 days)  - Heirloom, Open-pollinated

Heat Level: Very Hot  Scoville 30,000 - 50,000

~ 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, 30” apart or into large 5-gallon containers. Harvest chiles when they are yellowish-orange. 


All of our seeds are GMO-free.

I love all things purple

and I also love spicy too, so these purple cayenne peppers are the perfect addition to my garden. Thank you for these as well as all your other peppers, it's hard to pick from all of them, so I grow different ones every year from your seed catalog.

perfect pepper

These really are the perfect pepper! Really simple to grow if you've ever grown peppers before, but may be a challenge for beginners. I was surprised at how many fruit this plant grew and will definitely be growing them again next season.
