Cayenne Yellow offers a vibrant twist on the classic Cayenne variety with its bright yellow pods that mature to a golden hue. These slender peppers reach up to 10-15 cm in length and provide just above moderate heat that is both sharp and satisfying, making them perfect for adding a spicy kick to dishes without overpowering them.
Ideal for small spaces, these plants can thrive in pots or garden beds and are prolific producers. The peppers, with their thin flesh, are excellent for drying, powdering, or adding whole to infuse meals with their fiery flavor. As it’s also quite fast to mature, Cayenne Yellow is a must-try for those who appreciate just above moderate heat and a splash of bright color in their cooking.
