Black Hungarian Pepper Seeds
Dive into an intriguing blend of aesthetics and flavor with Black Hungarian Pepper Seeds. These extraordinary seeds produce peppers that serve as both a striking visual centerpiece and a flavorful culinary component in your garden. Black Hungarian peppers are an old Hungarian heirloom from the town of Kiskenfelegyhaza. Not only do they have a unique coloration, but they also bring a moderate level of heat that can spice up a variety of dishes. You won’t find these peppers at the produce market so you’ll need to start them from seed.
When it comes to spiciness, Black Hungarian Peppers are fairly mild, ranking between 2,500 and 10,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). This on par with the heat level of jalapeños, spicy enough to add a kick to your recipes.
The plants of the Black Hungarian Peppers usually grow to a mature height of about 36″ inches. Their compact form ensures they fit well into various gardening spaces, including small patios and urban gardens.
Day to Maturity
Black Hungarian Peppers typically take between 80 and 90 days to reach full maturity from the time of germination. This allows you a reasonable period to anticipate the harvesting stage and think about all the culinary possibilities that these unique peppers offer.
The size of a fully matured Black Hungarian Pepper usually ranges between 2 and 3 inches in length and about 1 inch in diameter. Their moderate size makes them versatile for culinary use, be it for stuffing, slicing, or spicing up a dish.
One of the most captivating features of Black Hungarian Peppers is their color transition. They start as an alluring black and mature into a jewel red. This dual coloration adds an exceptional ornamental value to your garden. When sliced, the black peppers will be green on the inside. Once they take on their red color the inner flesh will be red as well (see photo).
Black Hungarian Pepper Seeds produce peppers that are as visually striking as they are flavorful. With a moderate heat level and unique color transition, they are a must-have for any avid gardener.
