Even in northern climates you’ll be rewarded with a bountiful harvest when growing these Maule’s Red-Hot pepper seeds. This pepper variety was first brought to market by the William Henry Maule seed company of Philadelphia in 1903 and has continued to be a fan favorite. You may also have heard of these peppers referred to as the Lady Finger pepper. Vivid red and up to 10″ long, these cayenne-type peppers have many great uses in things such as hot sauce, picante sauce, or even as dried red pepper flakes. Also make a great frying pepper. The taste is slightly sweet with a delayed heat. The chilis on these plants mature from green to red and have an excellent Cayenne type flavor but are much larger than a Long Slim Cayenne pepper. On the Scoville scale these peppers range from 15,000 to 50,000 SHU. Each plant will reward you with dozens of peppers even in short season climates. The Maule’s Red-Hot peppers have a glossy red skin and reach 10-12″ in length. The sturdy plants top out around 36″ tall.
Be sure and pick up these Maule’s Red-Hot pepper seeds if you’re looking for a great all-around pepper with a Cayenne heat level and flavor. Sample size packs can be found here.
