As things begin to slow down in the field, with crops finishing for the season, half-forgotten gems brighten up the harvest days. Here, two beds of hot peppers, tucked away at the bottom of the field, have been doing uncommonly well. I’m not well versed in pepper heat, but I can tell that most of the selection is…rather hot. So hot that delicately biting into the flesh, without actually chewing a piece, is enough to provide a sensation that most people find quite intense, even slightly alarming. These beautiful red Cayenne Long Slim are no exception!
