These attractive plants are covered with 7 inches long by 1-1/4 inch fruits which are wrinkled, tapered and curved. Medium-thick sized walled, they ripen from a lustrous dark green to a brilliant scarlet.
Very pungent, even when small. This variety is said to be particularly high in vitamins C and A.
A favorite for using dried, pickled or in sauces. Cayenne peppers are used fresh in hot sauces, dried or ground for cayenne pepper or pepper flakes or threaded onto a string as an attractive 'Rista' craft decoration.
