Growing and harvesting

Cultivation of a cayenne pepper starts at the plant grower's where cayenne pepper seeds are sown in containers. These stand for approximately 2 weeks under a grow light of 23-25 degrees. After 2 weeks the seedlings come up and are transplanted in rockwool blocks or pots. When the plants are about 40 cm, they are put in the greenhouse or grown in open fields. This depends on the season. The plants are grown on rockwool or in the open. The plant grows up as a long stem with short sideshoots on which the peppers grow. They are harvested by hand after 6-8 weeks when they are of a uniform colour. After harvesting, the peppers are graded by quality, size and colour and packed in a 2 kg box. The products are then transported to Nature's Pride.
