Cayenne (30,000 Hu) (Ground, Organic)

Cayenne, named after the capital city of French Guiana, is a type of chili pepper also known as bird pepper, cow-horn pepper and by various other common names. The HU number refers to Scoville Heat Units, which measures how much heat-generating capsaicin is present. To the tongue, 30,000 HU has some kick considering Tabasco sauce has only about 5,000 HU.
Also Known As cayenne, cayenne pepper, guinea spice, cow-horn pepper, aleva, bird pepper, red pepper (powdered form)
