CAYENNE

Species: Annuum | Origin: French Guyana | Heat: Unknown
Add to my growing list

Pre-Columbian in origin and named after the Cayenne River in French Guyana, it owes it spread around the world to Portugal whose traders acrried it around the world in the 15th & 16th centuries. The long thin red fruits (in most cases) are probably what most non chileheads think all Chile Peppers look like. There are now a multitude of varieties available with differing fruit lengths, thicknesses and heat levels. Most grows 4 to 6 inches long, are thin fleshed and can be eaten green or red. They attain maximum heat however if they are left to ripen on the bush. Can be used in hot sauces or powdered to make cayenne pepper. 30000-50000 Scoville Units.
