yes it's a pepper plant, I find them fairly easy to grow! If you search on amazon for a 'grow your own chilli' kit, and choose one that appeals to you. Everything you need comes in the kits and all you need is a sunny area to sit it in, and water. Now is a good time of year to plant and grow seeds (in UK) and you'd probably have fruit by late summer!Is this a Cayenne pepper as in the same as the spice or something different?. I add Cayenne pepper to most of my meals & would love to try to grow some fresh if it's not too hard.
