CHILLI ‘Cayenne Red’ - 10 HEIRLOOM Seeds (Treated)
The modern kitchen has found a special place for the cayenne chilli. In fact, few cupboards are without a bottle of this chilli in powder form. Ground cayenne chili is a spice staple, and most likely the hottest one you’re going to have around. It’ll bring the heat to nearly any dish.
In terms of handling the heat, cayenne chillis are at a very good level for most people. It’s hot enough to feel very spicy, but not so hot as to turn off the great majority of palates. And since it has more capsaicin than a jalapeno and the lower heat chillis, this is a hot chilli that goes well beyond its culinary uses. Lots of people rely on it for its health benefits through cayenne pepper supplements and skin creams among other products. 67-72 days till maturity.
