You’ve heard of the classic Cayenne Pepper but now try growing the Purple Cayenne! Just like its parent strain, Purple Cayennes are a great variety that's utilized for their high pepper production, nice heat, and great flavor!

Purple Cayenne pepper plants are fairly compact and grow just over 2 ft. tall. Watch as they produce beautiful white-purple flowers and plenty of long, stringy pepper pods that span 3-6" in length. These are incredibly prolific plants, so be prepared for plenty of pods! The Cayenne Purple matures from light green to dark purple, and then red in the last stage of maturity. 

These purple variants have the same qualities and flavors as other Cayennes, including the same spicy heat! But you will notice a slightly sweeter undertone with these peppers that make the great when used fresh, pickled, dried, or even as ornamental peppers! These also make for fantastic hot pepper flakes, salsas, and vinegar sauce!

The purple cayenne peppers I grew from these seeds are stunning. I wish I could add a photo! They’re so dark, they’re almost black!

Great germination

Great germination 100% of the 12 seeds germinated and are still living. Seedlings are purple and continue to keep the purple color as they grow.Plants are now putting on the first blooms no fruit on the plants yet.

Purple cayenne

Finally starting to sprout after 30 days. I don’t know if you supplied the red yellow purple chocolate scorpions and peach habanero but they have not sprouted at all.
