Seeds are best if started indoors 4-6 weeks prior to final spring frost for transplanting. Sow 2-3 seeds 1\/4” deep per cell or peat pot in fertile, organically rich, and well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8. Seeds germinate in 7-21 days, transplanting best starts 12-18” apart in the garden or one plant per container. Pepper plants thrive in pots and containers with a phosphorus-rich potting mix and will benefit from staking and support as they become top-heavy during fruit production.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eNon-GMO (\u003cem\u003eCapsicum annuum\u003c\/em\u003e) Cayenne Pepper seeds grow as upright annual vegetables with abundant fast-maturity for a long growing season. Hot Long Slim Cayenne Peppers reach nearly 2’ tall during the warm seasons. Your Cayenne Peppers will give off a pungent, peppery and slightly sweet aroma along with hot flavor, also providing a variety of herbal benefits.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eOnce late summer sets in, cayenne will develop 5-6” long thin-walled slim red peppers with green leaves. Once they’ve turned green to bright-red with a glossy texture, they’re ready for harvest, Cayenne Peppers will begin to bloom small white flowers.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eCayenne Long Slim Hot Pepper in the Vegetable Garden\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003ePepper is one of the most diverse, showy, and flavorful fruits grown in the annual garden bed. Available in nearly every possible color and shape from the super sweet to super spicy, pepper grows stronger and tastes better with a season of full sun and high heat. Pepper plants thrive in pots and containers and can even perennially overwinter in warm enough regions, maturing into bushy, vibrant, and well-stemmed patio favorites.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAs Cayenne Pepper is a fast-growing annual vegetable that contains strong capsaicin properties, this variety is perfect to plant in your herb garden! The strong capsaicin and hot flavor of these peppers provide relief from colds or fevers, as these peppers are often ground or used as pepper flakes to add that extra ‘bite’!\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eHarvesting Cayenne Long Slim Hot Pepper\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSome sweet and bell peppers can be harvested as soon as 60-70 days, but most hot varieties are ready about 100 days from sowing or when skin has changed color. Know the individual variety you are sowing to know when color has reached ripeness. Peppers can be picked early to ripen indoors or left to ripen and change color on the vine. Using a knife or shears, carefully snip off peppers while leaving some stem attached to the fruit. If working with hot peppers, wear gloves to avoid skin contact with capsaicin.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eAbout Cayenne Long Slim Hot Pepper Seeds\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cem\u003eCapsicum annuum\u003c\/em\u003e.

Well, they just might have been talking about this Cayenne Pepper because it will surely light your mouth a fire. Use them to make a sauce. Dry them and ground them as a peppering spice.

An improved variety of the classic red, Long Red Thin cayenne is cultivated for meatier, more durable peppers. Maturing at 24-36\" tall and 30,000-50,000 SHU, Long Red Thin has got a little extra kick than the traditional cayenne. Although still not as thick for stuffing as jalapenos, Long Red Thin is ideal for dehydrating and sending through a spice grinder. ~4,000 seeds\/oz.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/www.trueleafmarket.com\/pages\/the-vegetable-growing-guide-from-true-leaf-market\" target=\"_blank\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eDownload Free Vegetable Growing Guide PDF\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c!--split--\u003e\n\u003ch2\u003eGrowing Non-GMO Cayenne Long Slim Hot Pepper Vegetable Seeds\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/www.trueleafmarket.com\/pages\/the-vegetable-growing-guide-from-true-leaf-market\" target=\"_blank\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eDownload Free Vegetable Growing Guide PDF\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c!--attr--\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eLatin Name:\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cem\u003eCapsicum annuum\u003c\/em\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eHardiness Zone:\u003c\/strong\u003e Annual 3-11 (Perennial 9-11)\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eDays to Maturity:\u003c\/strong\u003e 75-90\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eDays to Germination:\u003c\/strong\u003e 7-21\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eSeeding Depth:\u003c\/strong\u003e 1\/4\"\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003ePlant Spacing:\u003c\/strong\u003e 12-18\"\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eRow Spacing:\u003c\/strong\u003e 18-24\"\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003ePlant Height:\u003c\/strong\u003e 18-36\"\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eGrowth Habit:\u003c\/strong\u003e Sturdy upright\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eSoil Preference:\u003c\/strong\u003e Fertile, organically rich, well-drained\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eTemperature Preference:\u003c\/strong\u003e 70-90 °F\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eLight Preference:\u003c\/strong\u003e Full sun\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eCayenne Long Slim Color:\u003c\/strong\u003e Bright green while developing and dark red when ready to harvest\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eCayenne Long Slim Scoville:\u003c\/strong\u003e 30,000-50,000 SHU\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003ePests and Diseases:\u003c\/strong\u003e Susceptible to fungus, leaf spotting, and rot in poorly drained, oversaturated soils.
