Cheyenne is a relaxed habit multi branching Chilli that has a very attractive habit producing a heavy crop of 4inch green peppers that matures through bright orange all over the plant. The relaxed compact branching habit of Cheyenne plants make it a very attractive plant in the garden. The fruits are a little Pungent measuring 40,000shu (Scoville heat units) which is similar to Jalapeno type. The habit of Cheyenne makes it a superb choice for pots and containers as well as open ground.
The plant bears fruits from mid summer onwards and can be harvested as required (red fruits are most pungent).
Cheyenne with its compact branching habit, is ideal for pots and containers as well as on a warm sunny windowsill or of course in the garden border. Traditional Chilli plants are usually tall and top heavy requiring staking and protection from even light wind. Cheyenne remains compact and only requires at most a little support.
The use of chemical growth regulators are not recommended on pepper plants. Growth can be effectively controlled by high light levels and spacing of plants.
