Pepper (Chilli) - Cayenne Long Thin
This type produces long, thin fleshed peppers, which are vivid red and very hot. Use in chilli sauces and especially dried as powder. Vigorous variety growing to 24 inches.
Sow indoors from January to April, in soil 0.5 cm deep, in separate pots if possible. Pot on in late May outdoors either in containers as patio plants or in a well protected site. Peppers can be slow to germinate so allow up 35+ days. Compost should not be too moist to prevent the seeds from rotting. All chilli peppers are very sensitive to the cold.
