How to grow Chili pepper 'Cayenne Gold'

  • Full Sun

  • Medium

Try to plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Cayenne Gold is thought of as half hardy, so it will require protection in frosts and low temperatures. Ideally plant in loamy and sandy soil and try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 7.0 and 8.5 as Cayenne Gold likes to be in neutral soil to weakly alkaline soil.

Growing Cayenne Gold from seed

Start indoors six to eight weeks before last frost date.

Sow at a depth of approx. 0.2 inches (0.5 cm) and aim for a distance of at least 1.95 inches (5.0 cm) between Chili pepper plants. Soil temperature should be kept higher than 18°C / 64°F to ensure good germination.

By our calculations, you should look at sowing Cayenne Gold about 38 days before your last frost date.

Transplanting Cayenne Gold

Ensure that temperatures are mild and all chance of frost has passed before planting out, as Cayenne Gold is a half hardy plant.

Harvesting Cayenne Gold

Mature peppers are four to six inches long, golden-yellow in color. You can pick them green for a milder flavor.
