Product Information

Red hot in colour and red hot in taste that’s Chilli pepper De Cayenna.  A chilli pepper with a lot of kick. Renowned by pepper lovers for its immediate but quick finishing effect, just one touch with the tongue will make you mouth explode with heat. The long, slim, pointed, bright green pods which can grow to around 4-5 ins. long are produced in great abundance and profusion and turn deep red as they mature. Fruits typically weigh 50-90g and are best used fresh in hot sauces or to add zest to casseroles. They can also be dried for long term storage. De Cayenna is high in vitamin A. and also contains vitamin B6, vitamin E, vitamin C, riboflavin, potassium and manganese. Best grown indoors in a greenhouse or sunny patio Chilli pepper De Cayenna can however be grown outdoors in a sunny position once all danger of frost has past. Sow in a propagator, on a windowsill or in a greenhouse at 18-21C using a good quality compost. Cover the seeds with 6mm sieved compost and germination time  should be 7-12 days. Transplant seedlings into 75mm pots, grow on and plant into final positions after all risk of frost has passed making sure to allow 35-45cm between plants. The plants which will crop approx. 18 weeks after sowing will need a little support as the fruit develops and the pods can be used red or green.
