Pepper - Cayenne Mix - Capsicum annuum

Tender Annual A fiery mix of red, yellow, purple, green and orange Cayenne peppers! Use fresh in sauces or salsa or dry the thin walled fruit for pepper flakes or to flavor oil and vinegar. The seeds are not color coded.

Soil and Water: Peppers require deeply worked, well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter and a pH of 6.0-6.8. Water deeply, but don't over water.

Planting and Growing: Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Stake to keep fruit off the ground and mulch for disease and weed control.

Harvesting and Storage: Harvest the first fruits early to encourage continued production through the season. Cut (don't pull) the fruit from the stems. Harvestable from the green stage through the color changes. Wash hands thoroughly or wear gloves when working with this fruit, as the capsaicin in the pepper is an extreme eye and skin irritant.

Did You Know? The hot flavor comes from the chemical compound capsaicin, which has shown to reduce inflammation. Cayenne and other red chili peppers are also known to reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
