The Black Hungarian pepper plant is a beautifully bold and sweet conical pepper to grow in your garden or backyard. This 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.

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.

When harvested into a jewel red color, it’ll deliver a tasty sweetness that you will never get over and can potentially reach 10,000 SHUs. The Hungarian pepper is great for roasting, cooking, and stuffing!

Getting Started

So, you've received your seeds and are wondering what's next? At Pepper Joe's, we're committed to equipping you with everything you need to succeed in germinating the pepper seeds you've chosen. Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
