The Orange Cayenne pepper is a relative to the OG Cayenne but with a more vibrant color and slightly more heat! This pepper has a great flavor with the right amount of spice guaranteed to liven up any recipe!

These long and slender pods grow on 4 ft. tall plants that can grow well in the ground or in containers. Orange Cayenne peppers are conical 6” peppers that grow straight or curved and taper off to a pointed tip. They have thin flesh with smooth and glossy skin. Peppers will ripen from a dark green color to vibrant orange.

Enjoy the fruity and citrusy flavors of Orange Cayenne peppers in both fresh and cooked foods. The heat, like other Cayennes, is immediately intense but dissipates rather quickly. Chop these peppers up into salads, salsas, and soups, or cook them with chicken or pork for a nice textured taste. Dry these peppers and sprinkle them over meats, stews, and rice dishes for that extra heat.

Getting Started

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.
