The Cayenne chili is an absolute chili-classic. Red, aromatic and fiery. Perfect for spicing up dishes and ideal for drying. This chili variety is also common as a ready to use spice for your kitchen, known as Cayenne Pepper, which isn’t a pepper at all, but rather a chili. This chili variety has very thin-walled and slender pods that are 5-20 cm long. Cayenne chili is perfect for drying and subsequent grinding to create the well-known spice.
The origin and name of this chili variety derives from the city Cayenne which lies in Guyana, South America. The coast of Guyana was discovered in 1498 by Christopher Columbus. Later the city of Cayenne was established by French settlers. It is quite possible that this spice was named after the harbor city and from there exported to Europe.
Sowing indoors or in a conservatory is possible in pots year around.
In the summer it can also be planted outdoors. Before you plant the chili seeds, it is recommended to soak them in lukewarm water over night. Use permeable soil. Waterlogging will whither the chili plants quickly. Place the seeds approx. 0.5 – 1 cm deep and keep them consistently moist (use lukewarm water). As soon as seedlings sprout, one thing is very important for further growth: sunlight!
It may be necessary to provide the plants with sufficient supplement light by using special plant lamps. Once the plants have grown well, fertilization with commercially available fertilizer is recommended.
This is a natural product. Therefore, we do not guarantee a sprout or germ for seeds since the conditions under which sowing by the customer is made can not be assessed or influenced by us.
