Pepper - Black Hungarian - Capsicum chinense
Tender Annual Heirloom. Black Hungarian Peppers yield 4"-6", tapered fruit that start out glossy black and ripen to red. The fruit has a mild, smoky flavor. This tasty pepper is also highly ornamental with its lovely lavender flowers and purple veined leaves. The plants grow to about 36" tall and stand well without support.
Soil and Water: Peppers require deeply worked, well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter and a pH of 6.0-6.8. Water deeply, but don't over water.
Planting and Growing: Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Stake to keep fruit off the ground and mulch for disease and weed control.
Harvesting and Storage: Harvest the first fruits early to encourage continued production through the season. Cut (don't pull) the fruit from the stems. Harvestable from the green stage through the color changes.
