This rare early American pepper from the French Caribbean is a type of Cayenne without heat. It appears to be a selection of M’Mahon’s circa 1800 “long orange” as listed in his early 1800s Philadelphia seed catalogs. Our seed descended in the family of Dr. George Thomas (1808-1887), a Quaker botanist in Pennsylvania. The plants produce 2 ½ to 3 foot bushes yielding an abundance of late-season 3 ½ inch golden yellow pods. Perfect for pickling!
