Long Slim Cayenne is easy to grow, very dependable, and will produce huge yields of very hot peppers. The long red peppers have thin walls and are easy to dry. They are most commonly used for chile flakes or powder, but excellent for pickling, and fresh eating too. This pepper plant is bushy and reaches 24″ tall.

Cayenne seeds can be started indoors.

Start seeds inside 8 weeks before the last frost date. Plant seeds 1/2" deep in pots with growing mix and place on a warm seedling mat or in a warm area that is 70 to 85 degrees with bright light. Peppers require relatively warm temperatures to germinate and grow quickly. After 8 weeks, when the outdoor garden soil has warmed, transplant the seedlings 20" apart in rich soil and full sun. 

When watering soak the soil to a depth of at least 6" so the soil stays moist but never soggy. Mulching can help to provide uniform moisture, conserve water, and reduce weeds. 

Harvest when full size and red. The Long Slim Cayennes grow 5-6" long.

Each packet contains 30 Long slim Cayenne Pepper seeds. Capsicum annuum. Annual. Open-pollinated, heirloom, Non-GMO. Harvest in 85 days. $3.00

This packet plants a 50' row with 30 plants.

Peppers are delicious.

This is cayenne is a great introduction to a whole new culinary world of cooking with peppers. It is very spicy and the Scoville heat scale used to measure pepper heat reports it at 30,000 Scoville heat units. That is hotter than a tabasco pepper or a spicy hot jalapeno, so a little goes a long way. Cayenne is the best choice to add when any food needs more spice without changing its flavor.

Features.

It's fun to cook with cayenne and there are endless ways to incorporate it into food. They can be used fresh for adding spice to salsas and soups or infused into oil, vinegar, and even vodka. Roasted corn is delicious with butter, cayenne chile powder, and lime juice. Fish tacos are delicious when cayenne pepper is shaken on top. Or add chile powder to your coffee, popcorn, or ice cream dessert for a real treat. Pickling, fermenting, freezing, and dehydrating fresh cayenne peppers many ways to preserve them.

Benefits.
