Gorgeous jalapeno-shaped peppers mature from bright green to nearly jet black, and finally to intense scarlet red. The productive 60cm (24″) tall plants are loaded with fruits of medium heat. Use the pods interchangeably with jalapeno peppers for a shock of colour in dips and salsas. The flavour of these peppers really brightens as they mature, and the colours stand out on market tables. Try Black Hungarian pepper seeds in patio containers, but aim to keep the soil constantly moist during the growing season, and keep the plants well ventilated by allowing air circulation around the containers.
Matures in 75 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
