Pepper - Hungarian Black
Hungarian Black produces sturdy, 60cm plants loaded with 8cm, Jalapeno-shaped fruits which ripen to red. The plant produces medium heat fruits (Scoville Heat Units 5,000 to 10,000) 75 days from transplant.
Sow from February to April. Sow seed on the surface of a free draining compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place at a temperature 18-21°C until seeds germinate. Prick out seedlings when large enough to handle into 7cm pots and grow on under glass. Once plants reach 10cm tall, transplant into growbags or 25cm pots and grow on under glass. Feed once a week with tomato fertiliser once first fruits have set. Ready to harvest from late-July to October.
