Here is the Short Purple Cayenne Pepper, Capsicum annuum, Scoville Units: 30,000 SHU. This variety is a short upright purple cayenne pepper. We originally sourced our seed as a long purple cayenne pepper but instead this is what came out! This pepper variety is very productive and produces fruit all summer long and even in winter months if you bring it in. Pods are about 1.5 to 2 inches long and 3/8 inch wide at the base. Plants and fruits get a very dark purple almost black color then ripen to red. Plants get to 2 feet tall with hundreds of peppers on it. Some pods can be very hot so be careful! Open pollinated 65 days from transplanting.
