Pepper, Hot, Ristra Cayenne Hybrid

This super producer yields impressive numbers of foot-long fruits.
They start off a lovely lime green then ripen fully to bright crimson red. Exceptionally thin walls make the harvests excellent for stringing into large "ristras" for quick drying. Then snip one from the bunch when ready to use and crumble into a pot of chili or bowl of salsa. Chop or slice thinly and eat fresh too. Strong plants hold fruits high for easy picking. Cayenne peppers have 30,000-50,000 Scovilles of heat—six times hotter than a jalapeno but one-third to one-tenth the heat of a habanero.
