The Red Cayenne Pepper will put a hop, a skip, and a kick in your step. Slender, glossy 5"-6" fruits grow abundantly on strong plants, bounding through all the primary colors as it matures from green to yellow to orange to red. Primarily used as a dried spice, but can be used fresh to rev up a salsa or to make pickling brine howl.

If you want to spice it up with a different color, try the beautiful Purple Cayenne Pepper.
