This is our Doomsday Cayenne Pepper Seeds page. It tells how many cayenne pepper seeds one would need on hand in an emergency situation.
Fiercely hot and pungent, cayenne pepper is one of the widely used spice items in many cuisines. Cayenne fruits are slender, elongated pods obtained from the capsicum family plant.
The Cayenne variety of chili pepper plant is native to the Central American region where it employed as a spicy ingredient in the cuisine for several thousand years. It was introduced to the rest of the world, especially to the Indian subcontinent, by Spanish and Portuguese explorers during 16th and 17th centuries. They are now one of the important commercial crops grown in India, Pakistan, China, Argentina, and the USA.
Cayenne peppers have a strong spicy taste that comes to them from the active alkaloid compounds' capsaicin, capsanthin, and capsorubin. The hotness of cayenne measured in “Scoville heat units” (SHU). On the Scoville scale, cayenne pepper has 30,000 to 50,000 SHU. A bell pepper has zero.
There are many benefits to eating cayenne peppers for they contain many nutritious benefits. But for the purpose of our study we are going to concentrate on calories.
There are about 240 calories per cup of cayenne peppers. Trying to figure out how many cayenne peppers this is, is almost impossible due to the size of cayenne peppers.
This is five cups which is about 60 peppers a day. But you would get sick trying to eat this many cayenne peppers a day. Your body could not handle the heat.
The best way to use cayenne peppers is to dry and crush them into a fine powder you can use to spice up your meals. In powder form they can last for three to four years.
You can also use them in dried form or wet form to make an insecticide to put on your plants to keep insects off.
Fifty plants should give you enough peppers to last for several years.
Let the peppers dry on the plant or harvest them and lay them out in sun. Once they are dry, crush them into a fine powder. You will need to add some sort of crushing tool to your doomsday supplies.
As long as they do not freeze, plants can produce from three to four years.
