  • What is cayenne pepper?

    Cayenne pepper belongs to the Capsicum annuum family as well as the Capsicum frutescens family. It is recognizable by its bright red colour and elongated shape. It is a perennial annual plant that is cultivated for its fruit.

    Cayenne pepper appreciates rich, moist, but well drained soils. A full sun exposure will favour the growth of the plant and the maturity of its fruits.

    It is advisable to plant Capsicum annuum in spring to avoid the last frosts. Ideally from March to June depending on the region.

    Cayenne pepper harvest

    Cayenne pepper is harvested about 5 months after planting. Usually at the end of the summer. The plant has then reached its adult size, between 50 and 80 cm.

    It is advisable to pick peppers with gloves to avoid the risk of itching eyes caused by their spicy extracts. Cayenne pepper powder is made from dried chilli peppers that are ground.

    David Vanille's choice: I have selected this cayenne pepper powder for its assertive spiciness and its smoky aftertaste typical of hot peppers. Used sparingly, it spices up your dishes to the delight of spicy food lovers.
