Description

The Purple Cayenne Pepper may look like grape candy, but the color it leaves on your tongue is from the burn of 50,000 Scoville heat units (SHUs). The vigorous plant with purple-tinged leaves produces loads of lilac blossoms that become loads of 5"-6" slim, tapered, glossy purple fruit that can get so dark on its way to red hot, it looks like licorice. A bit sweeter than the Red Cayenne Pepper, and dazzling enough to be a landscape ornamental. Use it fresh, pickled, candied, or dried.
