Open Pollinated: Hungarian Black Beauty (Capsicum annuum)
What a looker! The Hungarian black is stunning in any dish served in your kitchen. With a range of heat that starts mildly in the black and intensifies as the fruits turn to a deep burgundy.
Tropical perennial that can be grown year round indoors or transplanted outside after all fear of frost (June 15 in Palmer, AK).
Please use gloves when cutting, seeding, touching these when they turn red. Please do not make the same mistake I did.
Peppers need to be started in late February or March in the far North. Soil temperature at germination is critical. Some like it hot…speed and increase germination with temperatures between 80 F-85 F.
Sow seed 1/4″ deep and maintain a moist growing medium. If growing in containers: 5-10 gallon pot. Peppers should be pruned for proper air circulation.
Aphids do love peppers! Lower your nitrogen use when all the local friends come to dine.
