Growing Cayenne Peppers

Anonymous added on May 13, 2014 | Answered

This is my first time growing cayenne peppers, and these peppers are huge, but I need to know when should I pick the peppers, when they are green or wait until they turn red? My plants are approx. 3 ft tall now. How long will they last me this summer?

    Harvest cayenne peppers once they have turned red. Cut the stems a half inch from the top of the pepper. String them up immediately on a line to dry, or pull the entire plant and hang upside down in a well-ventilated place.
