We discovered almost by accident that green cayenne peppers picked just before they turn red can bring a truly unique, tangy, earthy flavor; still carries the same fresh flavor as Dead Red, and that same rich concentration of all-natural cayenne peppers. Much of the harvesting of the green peppers happens at the end of a growing season, when these mature, perfectly balanced (but somewhat stubborn) peppers just decide to stay green; as such, we usually age these peppers a bit longer. A "late heat" that won't jump out at you right away, very popular at the breakfast table, the perfect balance of flavor and heat, still brings a solid heat (1-10) of 5-6, some vintages run a touch hotter during hot, dry summers.
