What is a Cayenne Buist's Pepper?
The Cayenne Buist's chili pepper originated in the United States. The pods are a bright orange and grow to roughly 4-5 inches in length. The pepper plant is quite productive, producing a lot of fruit which start out green and ripen to a gorgeous golden orange. The pods are somewhat sweet and rather mild in heat level. I personally have grown them and can confirm they are very productive on a single plant. I have used them for both salsas and hot sauces or as a simple fryer.
