Cayenne Pepper SEEDS Heirloom – Perennial Cayenne Chilli – Capsicum annuum

Cayenne Pepper is an easy-to-grow short living perennial shrub that produces red fruit up to 12 cm in length. Cayenne peppers are high in Vitamine A and C, and have lots of health benefits! Especially, if you grow them naturally in your garden. My Cayenne pepper bush is already four years old and still going strong! We use the green and the fully ripe red fruit in all sorts of dishes. Cayenne peppers can be frozen or dehydrated and ground into flakes or powder. This is a hardy variety that can be grown as a perennial in subtropics and tropics, and in other parts of Australia if you grow it in a pot and protect it from frost during winter.

The price is for 15 fresh seeds.

One of my favorite ways of preserving cayenne peppers is the sweet chilli sauce. You can find the recipe on my blog here: Sweet Chilli Sauce Recipe – Quick and Easy!

Planting and growing tips:

  • Start in a pot or tray to ensure success. Keep moist, not wet, until the seeds sprout.
  • Replant into individual pots when the seedlings have 3-4 leaves.
  • Cayenne pepper is an easy-to-grow plant, that loves full sun or semi-shade, and not much watering.
  • Replant into its final position or to a larger pot at the latest when you see some roots coming out of the pot’s bottom holes. The better the soil, the quicker and better it will grow.
  • It doesn’t like to sit in water so a well-drained position is best. All our edibles grow happily and quickly in slightly raised garden beds.
  • Trimming after harvest promotes future growth. I usually trim the branches during winter.

Additional notes:

  • The seeds are coming from the mother plant, naturally grown with lots of love in my permaculture food forest in Pacific Haven QLD Australia. Sending within Australia only, not to NORFOLK ISLAND, NT, SA, TAS, or WA. Pick up by appointment only.
  • Do your research before trying any new foods. Please also note our disclaimer in the footer of this page.
