A classic finger-style hot cayenne chilli. A prolific plant produces plenty of useful cooking-size chillies which can be used in green or red. The fruits are thin-skinned, making them popular for drying and turning into powder. Cayenne chillies boast a high Scoville rating, adding heat, flavour and colour to any dish or culinary creation.
Renowned globally, Cayenne Red Chilli is easily cultivated and comes in various forms such as fresh, dried, or powdered for convenient use.
Capsicum annuum, Capsicum frustescens
Heat Level (Scoville Rating)
Mild (30,000-50,000 SHU)
Cayenne Red Chilli pods range from 10-20cm in length, featuring a glossy and wrinkled texture. As the pods mature, they change from a dark green to a vivid red colour and develop the signature Cayenne curl.
Also known as
Red Bird Pepper, Hot Flame, Guinea Pepper, Goat's Pepper, Devil's Tongue, Cow Horn Pepper, Cockspur Pepper, Bird Pepper and African Pepper
To maximise yields, sow Cayenne Red Chilli seeds during the late winter to early spring months, in brightly lit areas with some protection from the elements. These bushy plants, topping out at between 60-100cm, are attractive additions to conservatories or outdoor pots and reach maturity after approximately 70 days. The 'Cayenne' variety has several options, including Buena Mulata (Purple Cayenne), Long Slim, Golden Cayenne, Long Purple and Cayennetta, and they typically bear abundant fruit. Loaded with spiciness and vitamin C, these chilli peppers are great for adding flavour and a touch of heat to any dish. With so many options to choose from, there's something for everyone.
Cooking & Eating
Cayenne Red Chillies are widely used in many types of cooking, often dried and processed into powdered form. Their thin walls make them ideal for drying and use in such items as wreaths and chilli ristras. Additionally, they are often employed in pickling and salsa production.

Let customers speak for us
From the moment the cute seed box arrives at your door, until the seedling pop up to say hello...they never disappoint. I've purchased a few different boxes of seeds and know they'll not be my last! Thank you 🐞🌸
I already have baby craspedia seedlings and can't wait to see them grow. I bought a couple of craspedia plants last year and they produce the most lovely yellow pom poms. They look great dotted in three's around the house and I also use them when I make dried wreaths.
This was gifted to my mum for her birthday and she loves it. You've got everything you need for flower pressing, including all instructions.
Nicely packaged and fast delivery
One of our favourites in the range. Balanced subtle tones, good burn time and will definitely buy again. Matt

I loved receiving the beautiful package of seeds, with some dried flowers enclosed and not an ounce of plastic in sight!
All thoughtfully eco friendly wrapped.
