Hotter than a Jalapeno but less hot than a Habanero, this extra-long heirloom classic Cayenne is a no-brainer for every garden and grow space. The rich spicy pods grow to be up to half a foot long and often develop a curly and wrinkly appearance. These Long Slim Cayenne Plants are dependable producers that start early and keep coming. You'll have plenty to experiment with in the kitchen in terms of powder, flakes, and roasting.
WARNING: Plants adjust to small, gradual changes in their environment better than sudden shifts, which is what the hardening off process is all about. Just as you get burned when you bare your untanned skin to the sun, leaves of plants started indoors will develop pale, sunburned patches if they are suddenly exposed to too much sun. The story has a happier ending when you introduce seedlings to bright light and sheltered breezes gradually, over a period of one to three weeks.
