  • What is cayenne pepper?

    Cayenne pepper belongs to the Capsicum annuum family as well as to 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. Full sun exposure will promote 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.

    Did you know that? Cayenne pepper scores 6 on the Scoville scale (30,000 Scoville units). This scale defines the degree of spiciness of spices by analyzing the capsaicin content

    Cayenne pepper harvest

    The chilli pepper is harvested about 5 months after planting. Usually in late 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 the dried chilli peppers that are ground.

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