Cayenne Pepper Capsicum annuum
The saying “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it” couldn’t be more true for the cayenne pepper. Time after time, cayenne has proven to be one of the best and most reliable peppers for drying and making your own spice mix. They are an easy-growing plant and work well in containers. If you plan to grow in containers, choose a dark container to bring more heat to its roots.
