Cayenne Purple Pepper Seeds
NEW VARIETY - ARRIVING OCTOBER 2021!
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.

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.
