A very attractive plant in the garden, the F1 Cheyenne is an easy to grow hybrid branching chile that produces a heavy crop of 4 inch green peppers that mature to bright orange all over the plant. The habit of Cheyenne makes it a superb choice for pots and hanging baskets as well as open ground. Cheyenne plants remains compact and only requires at most a little support. Very tasty and highly recommended

Note: There is another variety of large cayenne type hot peppers that mature to red and are much longer being sold as Cheyenne Hot Peppers. This may be a case of 2 different peppers being given the same name. Confusing, I know. The orange variety is often found in UK garden centers. And I believe the red Cheyenne (F1) Pepper Seed is sold in the United States.
