The Ristra Cayenne Pepper is truly a monster! These peppers will grow to a foot long, proving to be one of the bigger peppers we currently sell! Not only will they grow to be large peppers, but they will twist and curl as they continue to grow. The Ristra Cayenne pepper plant is easy to tend and grow, and it is quite a heavy producer. Ripening from green to red, the heat can reach up to 30,000 SHUs at its highest heat level when turned red. However, this variety is known to vary greatly in heat, with some being very sweet with almost no heat. These can still be harvested at different stages, and they are great for drying, and to add in salsas, hot sauces, and chilis.

Ristra - Awesome bounty but little heat

I have 3 Ristra plants and the beauty of the plant and growth rate is amazing. Great looking plants and the peppers themselves are quite impressive. I actually consider these peppers more ornamental as they have very little heat and/or flavor warranting recipe use. Beautiful and one of the easier to grow..pretty impressive.

Tasty, but very mild

These plants grow very well and produce a lot of large, high quality peppers very quickly. The peppers have a great flavor, but if you're looking for any heat - look elsewhere. Even fully ripened, the peppers I've harvested off multiple plants are quite mild, almost zero heat.

Thank you for your honest feedback!
