Cayenne Diane 173 Pepper Gal
I love everything spicy! So much so that I created a site that shares my passion for growing hot peppers and discovering all kinds of spicy foods. I started CayenneDiane.com as a labor of love to provide information to those out there that share my same love of heat and might want to discover more information about peppers. Stay spicy my friend!

Here is the Santaka Pepper, a hot chile that originates from Japan. Also know as ‘Asian Hot’, this mirasol type chile plant (meaning the fruits point towards the sun).
The Rezha Macedonian is a very unique heirloom pepper, having prominent tan lines all across the flesh called ‘corking’. This is a very old pepper grown in Macedonia for 100+ years, but relatively new to the rest of the world. The pepper ripens from green to a brilliant red and is approximately 4″ – 7″ long.
The word “rezha” in Macedonian means “engraved.” Another local name, Vezeni Piperki, means “embroidered”. Both names refer to the curious lines on the skins of tapered peppers.
