Heirloom Purple Cayenne Pepper Seeds
Heirloom Cayenne Peppers are a hot pepper with 5-7 inch long fruit that start red and matures to purple.
These Purple Cayenne Peppers are a spicy – hot heirloom variety that produces dozens of purple blossoms and 5–7 inch long, thin, dark purple fruits. The peppers begin bright red in color and turn purple when mature. This variety of pepper grows about 2 feet tall with ornamental appeal in addition to its remarkable taste.
We recommend planting these Heirloom Purple Cayenne Pepper seeds indoors 1-2 inches apart about 8-10 weeks before transplanting to 2-3 inch pots after true leaves appear. Then transplant outside 2-4 weeks after last frost date (or when soil temperature reaches at least 60 degrees).
10% of all seed sales will be donated to the State Farmers Market Association. We feel it’s very important to support local farms, farmers and their families. This line of seeds was developed in collaboration with the State Farmers Market Association.
Farmers Market Seeds are Certified Organic seeds from small, independent farms. For four generations our family-run seed packing business has provided quality seed to farmers and families. It all started with our Great Grandfather, Cecil Solly, a horticulturalist in the Seattle, Washington area from 1924 until his death in 1965. During his lifetime he was the editor for Northwest Gardens Magazine, had a daily column in The Seattle Times, The Tacoma News Tribune and Western Homes Magazine. He starred in a 30 year running daily radio program called “Garden on the Air” and was Founder and President of the Puget Sound Seed Company. Grandpa Cecil was very active in local gardening communities and clubs – always ready and willing to share his gardening knowledge, making him the Original Master Gardener.
