    Product Details

    Description

    One of the best-known spicy chillies, ‘Cayenne’ are grown commercially in Africa, India, Japan and Mexico and some southern states of the USA. Plants are tall and bushy, reaching 60-100cm in height, and make attractive feature plants in a conservatory or pots outdoors. They reach maturity after around 70 days and will fruit prolifically.

    Plant Care Tips

    Sow a few seeds into a tray in late January to May and cover lightly with seed compost.  Either use a heated propagator or pop the seed tray into an enclosed plastic bag and seal and place it on a windowsill.  Once the seedling has produced two true leaves (second set of leaves) they can be transplanted into individual pots.  Try and maintain around 20-25 degrees while young plants.

    As the plant grows, transplant it into as large a pot as allows, this will determine the size of the plant.  Once the plant has flowered and has started to produce small chillies, it will benefit from a feed of either comfrey tea or tomato feed.  Chillies dislike irregular watering as this will sometimes cause blossom end rot (the base of the chilli/pepper rots)
