The Cayenne Ring of Fire pepper is a fiery and popular chili variety, known for its intense heat and versatility in culinary applications. A member of the Capsicum annuum species, this pepper derives its name from both its fiery nature and its resemblance to the traditional cayenne pepper.

On the Scoville Heat Scale, these peppers typically measure between 30,000 to 50,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), packing a significant punch in terms of spiciness. Although less scorching than some of the super-hot chili varieties, the Cayenne Ring of Fire peppers still provide a noticeable and lingering heat.

Despite their intense spiciness, these peppers offer a subtle fruity flavor beneath the heat, which can be appreciated if used in smaller quantities or in dishes that can complement the heat level. They are commonly used in various culinary preparations, including hot sauces, salsas, marinades, and dry spice blends, where they contribute a fiery kick and depth of flavor.
