The Long Red Thick Cayenne pepper is the biggest cayenne pepper that you can grow! All cayennes are categorized by size, length, and thickness of the pod's walls - this strain is twice as thick as other varieties!

These cayenne pepper plants are relatively compact, growing between 2-3 ft. tall and boasting skinny pods that will grow 5-6" long. The Long Red Thick Cayenne pepper ripens from a lustrous dark green to a brilliant, fiery scarlet color and will grow into wrinkled, tapered, curved pods born on strong, upright plants. This is one gorgeous pepper that you’ll never want to look away from and will stand out beautifully in your garden or backyard.

Long Red Thick Cayenne peppers are one of the most delicious peppers you can use for powder, pickled, in sauces, or as dried form! Don't believe us? Pick up a packet of these seeds and try them out for yourself!

Getting Started

So, you've received your seeds and are wondering what's next? At Pepper Joe's, we're committed to equipping you with everything you need to succeed in germinating the pepper seeds you've chosen. Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
