More info

Cayenne pepper is a plant that belongs to the Solanaceae family.
This hot pepper is grown for its fruits with a particularly spicy and tasty flavor.
On the Scoville scale, it is ranked 8th out of 10, or around 50,000 Scoville units, which makes it a very hot pepper just like the habanero pepper.

The Cayenne pepper is a small shrub that can measure up to 1 meter in height with rather elongated leaves.
Its flowers are white in summer.
Its fruits, the peppers, are long, they can measure up to 25 cm in length.
This variety is very early and productive.
Cayenne pepper seeds are yellow and resemble those of the winter cherry or tree tomato.

The Aztecs were the first users of this pepper, they prepared it with cocoa to make a drink supposed to give a lot of courage.
Christopher Columbus brought it back from the New World and its use spread throughout the world.
In cooking, this strong pepper is renowned for its spicy and burning taste.

In medicine it was used for the same properties as mallowlemon balm or thyme.
Take a pinch of powder, honey and 25 ml of lemon diluted in hot water.

The best time to sow cayenne pepper seeds is in March under cover.

Sow the seeds in pots in batches of 2 or 3 under a few millimeters of seedling soil.
Use a very rich substrate and aerate.
Then spray water and place the culture in the heat in a greenhouse for example or near a heat source.
If possible, use an additional lamp to remedy phototropism.

Finally, once the cayenne pepper seedlings measure 5 cm in height, they will need to be transplanted into pots separately or directly into the garden in a sunny location.
