Experience the Depth of Flavor with Heirloom Seeds

Heirloom Charm: Introducing the Hungarian Black Pepper, a standout variety with a deep, purplish-black hue. Originating from an heirloom lineage, these seeds promise authenticity and a rich harvest.

Distinct Flavor Profile: More than its striking appearance, this pepper offers a unique taste. Perfect for both culinary explorations and classic dishes, the Hungarian Black Pepper is a must-have for every Alaskan kitchen garden.

Tailored for Alaska: Cultivating in Alaska can be a challenge, but not with these seeds. Specifically chosen for their resilience, they stand up to the unique Alaskan climate, ensuring a plentiful yield. Greenhouse growing is recommended for latitude 60 and above.

Planting Recommendations:

  • Starting Indoors: It’s best to begin 8-10 weeks prior to the last frost, especially in Alaska’s cooler climate.
  • Transition: When plants stand strong at about 6 inches and frost is behind, transplant them outdoors.
  • Spot Selection: Go for areas with good sunlight and fertile, well-drained soil.

Garden tips and stories:

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.

Minimum 10 seeds per packet
