CAYENNE-LONG PEPPER (70 days heirloom)


Germ 10-14 days
Heirloom pre-1827
Wrinkled peppers are 6” long and skinny. Fiery hot and excellent for drying. An attractive plant. 20 seeds


Indoors- Start 8-10 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 70-80 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant 18” apart when danger of frost has passed and when soil is 65 degrees.

Harvest- Using a sharp instrument, pick first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some on to mature, to color and sweeten up.

Tips- Plant in fertile, well composted soil, mulch and provide adequate water. It helps to use row cover early in the season giving the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Side dress when flowers begin to form.
