Pepper (Chilli) - Hungarian Black
This variety produces unique, black-colored fruit that are the shape of a Jalapeno. They are mildly hot and have a delicious flavour. The tall plants have beautiful purple flowers that make this variety very ornamental. It is very rare and colorful!
Sow indoors from February to April, in soil 0.5 cm deep, in separate pots if possible. Pot on in late May outdoors either in containers as patio plants or in a well protected site. Peppers can be slow to germinate so allow up 35+ days. Compost should not be too moist to prevent the seeds from rotting. All chilli peppers are very sensitive to the cold.
