Cayenne-Long Pepper (Heirloom 70 Days)

Heirloom pre-1827. Wrinkled peppers are 6” long and skinny. Fiery hot and excellent for drying. An attractive plant. 

20 seeds  


Caspsicum annuum

Germination: 10-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 75-85ºF. Cooler soil temperatures slow germination time.

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼” deep

Starting Indoors:  8-10 weeks before the last frost. Sow in flats/cells/pots. Provide 75-85ºF soil temperatures. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water-soluble fertilizer (diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement). Transplant seedlings 18-24” apart after the last frost.

Sowing Outdoors: Not recommended, especially in northern areas

How much does a packet plant: 20-25 foot single row  

Harvest: Use a sharp instrument to cut the peppers from the plant. Pick the first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some peppers on the plant to mature so they can change color and sweeten up.

Tips: Pinch off early flowers or tiny fruit on any seedlings before placing them in the ground. Plant in fertile soil, amend with compost if needed. 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.

Pretty little seedlings

So far they are in their starter pot being harden off for planting outside. They a very pretty little peppers and will make attractive accent to my garden. I look forward to all the spicy food I will make with them.

Good producer

Plants were happy and healthy and had a lot of fruit. Peppers didn't end up really big, but were still delicious and the amount of peppers per plant probably made up for it. Ripened quickly and the plants were big and gorgeous. See video of the plants at the beginning of this video: https://youtu.be/BtxSDWvErHM
