Black Hungarian is a beautiful & ornamental pepper plant with green and purple leaves. The plants in my garden were much more purpley and variegated than the pictures shown. I planted it along with Red Burgundy Okra and purple basil. Placed several plants less than a foot apart to prevent sun scald and to achieve a hedge-like appearance around the okra.
A very mild mannered 'hot' pepper with just enough kick that my toddler can tolerate. When picked young the black hungarian boasts a green interior that looks lovely when diced in salsa or sprinkled with cilantro. I don't know why SSE rates this pepper at a 3, even when allowed to turn red it doesn't compare to the Fish?
A prolific producer that continued until frost, with a nice boost in blooms and crop once fall's cooler weather settled in too.

I'm growing this plant in Saskatchewan, Canada (zone 3). The fruit are black and at mature size now (July 31, 2008). I expect they will turn red well before frost.

Grew well in Branson Missouri but I planted too late (june) and they didn't have time to fruit before the first frost got them. Will try again next year and plant earlier.

A cool plant to grow because it's visually appealing. A pepper aficianado may not be so impressed with its taste. It doesn't really deliver a punch. I add it to my fish pepper salt blend.

Very easy to grow from seed. Forms a very pretty plant with puple flowers. It looks nice as a landscape pepper.
9/29/2005 -- This pepper has really turned out to be a winner. It is quite mild when it is black (like a Jalapeņo). When it turns red, it gets HOT.

Matures in 75 days. Unique, black colored fruit that are the shape of a Jalapeno. They are mildly hot and have a delicious flavor. The tall plants also have beautiful purple flowers that make this variety very ornamental. Rare and colorful!
