Hot Peppers That Pack A Punch


Cayenne and Jalapeño with two Bell peppers.

Hotter, drier days means hotter peppers. And the cayenne was certainly hot.

A friend and I each consumed a freshly picked cayenne pepper and within a minute regretted that bold move.

Needless to say, it burnt while on its way back out too... nice taste tho.

Top left is where I keep my seed fruits to dry out and provide seeds for next season.

You might have had the wrong pepper Cayenne. One is kinda orange when ready And by the looks of it the other is a chilli pepper which is hot 🥵

Definitely cayenne just not yet fully ripened to red. There’s a ton of em on the plant so I wanted to pick some and give them away to the guests.

Had to taste test at least one..
