Capsicum annuum | Cayenne Pepper ‘Striped Mols’
30,000- 50,000 Scoville
Cayenne Peppers are flowering plants in the nightshade family (Solanaceae) with edible fruits that are commonly made into relishes, or pickled, or ground into a fine powder for use as a spice. Some pepper varieties are not edible and are grown as ornamentals.
Peppers are grown as tender summer annuals in most areas outside their native habitat. Seeds are best propagated indoors or in a greenhouse. It is recommended to transplant outdoors when soil temperatures reach 60 F or warmer. Plants become woody as the growing season progresses. Flowers are typically small with five white petals and pepper fruits come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Mature around 75 days from transplant.
The ‘Striped Mols/Maul’ is a really neat mutation of the Red Maul chili/cayenne pepper. These seeds are not completely uniform, however many fruits will show a dark striping of green or black against a contrasting color of green or black, depending on which color is dominant. Very unique and hard to find pepper variety!
