Long Red Cayenne Pepper Seeds (Hot Chili Type)
With 9,000 years of cultivation behind them, it is no wonder that there are a myriad of pepper varieties available to the home gardener – all have their origins in wild species native to Central and South America. Long Red Cayenne is moderately hot. Plants about 75 cm (2 1/2′ ) tall produce thin, tapered, hot peppers about 12.5 cm (6″) long and 1.25 cm (1/2″) thick. The fruit is often curled and twisted and ripens to a green/crimson red. Ideal for canning, pickling or drying! A very good all purpose hot chili. Suitable for use in eastern Asian cuisine. Scoville Heat Unit Rating – 4000.
