Capsicum fruitescens
CHILLI-HUNGARIAN-BLACK There’s a drama to the Hungarian black pepper that’s 100% its own. Its dark-hued skin turns to a rich jewel tone red as it ages, & it delivers a certain sweetness at maturity quite unlike other chilies in its heat range.

They have a shape much like a jalapeño, but with slightly thicker walls. They grow in a conical shape, up to 7.5cm long, with a slight curve near the tip. When young, they age from green to a slightly shiny deep purple to black hue. As it ages into maturity, it morphs from dark to a jewel tone red. During the process, this chilli becomes two-toned – shiny black & rich red. The plant, is lovely with delicate purple flowers blooming among the chilies. It’s a terrific salsa chilli, & it works very well sliced into salads. You can stuff these chilies as well, just consider the mild sweetness when pairing ingredients. They also work well as pickling peppers & with their thick fleshy walls, they dry well, too. The Black Hungarian is too often overlooked.
