Joe's Long Cayenne Pepper
"Capsicum Joe's Long Cayenne (USDA Organic) Pepper Heirloom, Capsicum 'Joe's Long Cayenne', is a variety that originates from Calabria, Italy.
The unbelievably long, slender fruits of 'Joe's Long Cayenne' are 8"" to 10"" long, thin-skinned, and taper to a small point.
It turns bright red for homemade hot sauce and dries well for ristras and delicious, dried hot pepper flakes.
Capsicum refers to a wide variety of tropical pepper plants with the genus of the same name.
The name is perhaps derived from the Latin ""capsa,"" or box for the pod-like fruit. They are also frequently used both chopped and raw in salads, or cooked in stir-fries or other mixed dishes. They can be sliced into strips and fried, roasted whole or in pieces, or chopped and incorporated into salsas or other sauces.
Capsicum is a relative of the tomato and requires similar growing conditions.
