Cayenne Purple Pepper Seeds
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.
