So how are the peppers doing

Now it's August 3 and my cayenne plant is finally coming up with some peppers. Look, there's a red one! The second pot is showing some sprouts. These peppers did not have much luck on the windowsill a few months ago. Maybe they'll do better on the porch. I threw out the bag they came in and I forgot what they are called.

Hot ShopRite cayenne peppers

I love cayenne peppers. They are traditionally used in chili and they can be grown on a balcony. I was walking through the parking lot of a Shop Rite in the Montgomery mall and a cayenne pepper plant that looked healthy drew my attention. It was sitting outside of the store and I decided to give it a home. It seems to be doing well, although so far the peppers are the size of a nail head. My Texas mother would be proud.
Editor's note. Although tempted, I brought it into the store and paid for the plant.
