The Cayenne Peppers I Started From Seed Are Now Turning Bright Red
We are so glad that we joined Mike The Gardener’s Seed of the Month Club because we get 4 packages of vegetable seeds each and every month like clockwork.
Last winter we received Cayenne pepper seeds which excited me because I love my hot peppers which are usually dried.
I started the cayenne pepper seeds in the house a month or so before I would be able to transplant them into our vegetable garden. A couple of weeks before transplanting them I moved them outside to my mini greenhouse so they would toughen up a bit.
I knew they were suppose to turn red but I waited and waited and by the end of August I just assumed I was wrong. But just when I gave up hope I noticed something shining in the sun and when I looked it was a cayenne pepper turning red from the bottom up.
I think the reason the cayenne peppers took so long to start maturing was due to me picking them before they had the chance to mature.
As soon as they were about 4 inches long I couldn’t resist eating them. I’ve been adding them to meals and preserves and love the taste and heat they add. It wasn’t until there were so many peppers growing that I couldn’t eat them all which gave come the opportunity to mature.
