Product Description

El Señor hot cayenne peppers look spectacular in both the garden and the kitchen. Their long, uniquely twisted and striped fruits turn from green to red with green stripes, and then to fully red. These peppers are hot! Try drying them for later use as hot pepper flakes. Also great for blending into pureed salsas, soups, or chopped into tacos and southwestern-style omelets. They grow best in rich, well-drained soil and in full sunlight. In addition to its high levels of antioxidants, hot pepper varieties like El Señor can help lower blood pressure, and are good for your heart. 65 days to maturity.
