The Ring of Fire Cayenne is a newer improved variety with earlier and more productive plants. Cayenne is a very popular pepper for adding heat to dishes without adding a distinct pepper flavor. Can be used fresh in hot sauces, ground as a powder in chocolate cookies, or as pepper flakes on pizza. The thin flesh on this pepper makes them excellent for drying. These pencil-thin peppers are 4” long with smooth, bright red color and great flavor. Plants are 18” tall and yield heavy sets of fiery peppers. Great for short seasons.
