The Hungarian Black Pepper is a rare & colorful hungarian heirloom Chile, originating in the city of Kiskenfelegyhaza in modern day Hungary. Unique, black-colored fruits are the shape of a Jalapeño.

They are mildly hot and have a delicious flavor. The tall plants have beautiful purple flowers that make this variety very ornamental. The pods are about the same size as a Jalapeño and ripen from very dark purple to red in approximately 70 days.

CULINARY USE: These peppers are good for salads or salsa, when some color is desired but not too much heat.
