Planting Guide

Here's your simple guide to growing Long Red Narrow Cayenne peppers:

  • This variety thrives in full sunlight.
  • It reaches maturity in about 80 days.
  • Start indoors, sowing the seeds between 8 and 10 weeks prior to the last frost.
  • Plant seeds 1/4 inch deep, with a spacing of 12 to 18 inches.
  • As the seedlings develop indoors, ensure they're placed in a warm and sunny area.
  • After the last frost, wait 2 to 3 weeks before setting plants outdoors.
  • Transplant seedlings 2 inches deep and 12 to 18 inches apart, creating rows 24 to 36 inches apart in raised beds.

Harvesting Guide

Reap the fruits of your labor with these Cayenne pepper harvesting tips:

  • Harvest peppers when they're firm, shiny, and have a crisp texture.
  • Use garden shears to clip the fruits to prevent plant damage.
  • Store fresh peppers at 50°F with at least 90% humidity, when possible.
  • Keep peppers separate from other fruits and vegetables during storage, as peppers are ethylene-sensitive.
