Also known as the yellow cayenne chile pepper or golden cayenne pepper, the Cayenne Golden is a more interesting and hotter version of the Red Cayenne pepper. If you are looking for a beautiful, outstanding pepper plant to grow golden peppers, this will be an amazing plant for you to grow.

Golden Cayenne pepper plants add variety and beauty to your garden or backward, growing up to 3 ft. tall and boasting pods with attractive shapes and colors. When compared to the Red Cayenne pepper, the golden Cayenne pepper has smoother skin and fewer wrinkles, has hotter heat, and grows longer (about 4-6 inches long).

The Golden Cayenne’s flavor profile is a sweeter, tart, smoky flavor with intense, strong heat. If you wait until the pepper matures fully, you'll get the full, unforgettable heat! These peppers are great to use for Creole, Cajun, and Southern cooking and can be roasted, grilled, and used in hot sauces, jam, jellies, and salsas.

My New Favorite Pepper

Jalapenos used to be my favorite pepper, but a few years ago I began to crave more heat then jalapenos could deliver. I switched to cayenne's to get great flavour and better heat. These yellow cayennes give me everything I am looking for. They produce better then the red cayenne plants, taste great, and have slightly better heat. The best part is how they look after drying/grinding into a hot powder or turned into hot sauce. They also smell great. Too many times I have been disappointed with peppers of different colour. They look great on the plant, but either taste bitter or look awful as a hot sauce or spice, but not these yellow cayennes. I couldn't be happier.
