Heirloom Organic Hot Cayenne Pepper Seeds (15)
Can you take the heat? If you love hot peppers, then add Hot Cayenne to your garden. A famously fiery pepper from South America, Hot Cayenne provides the perfect punch of heat in dishes, while also adding flavor and spice when used fresh, canned, or pickled. Add a Hot Cayenne pepper to a bottle of your favorite oil or vinegar to infuse it with flavor. With high yields, you’ll have plenty of thin-walled, bright red peppers to string into a ristra, an easy way to dry your garden surplus for future use. Beware: these peppers pack a punch, with a Scoville rating of 30,000-50,000. Wear gloves when handling.
