The Black Hungarian pepper plant is a beautifully bold and sweet conical pepper to grow in your garden or backyard. The pepper is similar in shape and size to the Jalapeno, but the Hungarian pepper is much more interesting to grow and plate. The skin is dark-hued that turns into a rich jewel red color as it ages, and it’s a very rare, unforgettable, gorgeous color that you won’t see in a lot of peppers. The Hungarian Black chili is fun to plate aesthetically because as you slice the pepper open, you’ll discover green flesh and thick green walls in the interior.
The black pepper is a mildly hot pepper with 2,500 SHUs, similar to a jalapeno’s spice, and can be used as both an ornamental pepper and culinary pepper. When harvested into a jewel red color, it’ll deliver a tasty sweetness that you will never get over and can potentially reach to 10,000 SHUs. The Hungarian pepper is great for roasting, cooking, and stuffing!
