Cow Horn Hot Peppers are named after their shape and relation to, you guessed it, a cow's horn! These cayenne peppers are one of the largest chilis in the world and make for a great addition to many different cuisines.

The Cow Horn plant grows up to 3 ft. tall and produces pods that can grow up to 8-10” long and 1" wide. That’s three Jalapeños to match the total length of the average Cow Horn pepper! These pods start out as green, then turn to red as they ripen. Their shape is long, slender, and curved with very thick walls.

These chiles are an excellent choice for those who want to take their produce to market and those who want to grow these at a smaller scale in home gardens. The Cow Horn Peppers' thick walls make this phenomenal for making sauces and drying to turn into pepper flakes. We recommend cooking with this pepper because its heat is family-friendly, so the Cow Horn is also great for pickling, hot sauces, salsas, and many more culinary uses.

Cow Horn Pepper Seeds

David Ewoldsen

I make my own chili powders, paprika, pickled peppers, several different types of hot pepper sauces, and lots of salsa. I have used many different seed companies in the past. Pepper Joe's seeds are the best - bar none. I have almost 100% germination rates and the plants provide an incredible yield.

Needless to say, after trying Pepper Joe's seeds for the first time last year, they are all I purchased this year.

I bought a mass amount of different varieties from PJ's I'll have to wait until end of season to review the rest. But these.... these beautiful seeds. Since the start they grew faster and harder than any of the other seeds. Looking at them now, and to be fair only comparing them to other cayenne peppers, since superhots are slowgrows early on. These are incredible.
I planted 3 seeds. All 3 sprouted and are DOUBLED the size of every other pepper plant I have.
I admit my methods are not scientific at all. But I 'top' my plants when they reach the appropriate time, since I have quite a long growing season in Florida. But I keep the topping consistent.

Long story short. If these seeds are from the genetics of the seeds I got, this is definitely something you will want to buy if you enjoy cayenne flavors and a lot of lovely long peppers.

After 3 weeks on a seed heat pad and still waiting on anything to sprout. Dealing with the company was awesome. Received items quickly. Will update later.

Hello, hot peppers can be tricky to germinate. Here is the process we follow and see 95% success rate across the board. They are very particular to soil temp requiring 80-85* and can take up to 6 weeks to germinate. I hope this helps! Let us know what other questions you may have!

poor quality

Not a single seed germinated. And I was sent some BS reply from Pepper Joe's after my first prompted review like this one saying I need to keep the seeds at a higher temperature. Yeah, no kidding Pepper Joe's. This isn't my first rodeo! Save your money; Don't buy from Pepper Joe's.
