Capsicum Long Red Cayenne Slim, also known as simply Cayenne pepper, is a type of chili pepper that is widely used in many cuisines around the world. It is long, slender, and tapered, with a bright red colour when mature. The pepper gets its name from the city of Cayenne in French Guiana, where it is said to have originated.
Cayenne pepper is known for its pungent, spicy flavour and heat, which ranges from mild to very hot, depending on the variety and how it is prepared. It is commonly used in sauces, marinades, and seasoning blends, as well as in dishes such as chili, curries, and stir-fries.
