Cayenne Peppers- Capsicum annuum

It is moderately a hot chili pepper and very easy and abundant to grow in container gardening. Most varieties are generally rated 30,000- 50,000 Scoville units. They are often said to belong to the frutescens variety. Originally the word Cayenne is believed to have been the replacement word for the original name “quinia” by Elders of the Old Tupi language once spoken in Brazil.

Nutritional Value

Cayenne Peppers are very high in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium. And are also sometimes used in herbal supplements for their high nutrient values.

They grow abundantly colorful in containers. In two 10” Pots I made enough dry pepper flakes to last me 2 years! And we like our spicy foods! They too are great for freezing and preserving in pickling recipes to add a bit of zip to them.
