“And the flames went higher. And it burns, burns, burns,” just like how Johnny Cash said!
Also known as the "Ring o Fire pepper" or "Ring of Fire Cayenne pepper", this is a newer variety of the Cayenne pepper. Their appearances, colors, and heat are similar, but the Ring of Fire pepper plant is more productive with great yields and reaches an earlier maturity stage. This is perfect for gardeners who live in shorter warm seasons as the plants are relatively short but produce heavy yields of tasty, fiery peppers!
The Ring of Fire Cayenne pepper is a small tapered pepper that ripens from dark green and gets hotter and more flavorful as they turn bright red but can be enjoyed in both stages. Growing to 4 inches long, this pepper is common for hot sauces, and as a dried format to be used for chili powder or chili flakes (we recommend adding this powder to your chilis or to your chocolate chip cookies, or as pepper places on pizza).
