The Black Prince pepper may be small, but it sure is pretty. This is a great ornamental variety to add to your garden or patio. Plus, unlike most ornamental peppers, Black Princes have a great flavor for many different culinary uses.

This compact plant grows up to 2 ft. in containers and has beautiful purple flowers that will look spectacular in your garden. Black Prince peppers grow from black to red when mature, and are quite small, reaching only about 1/2" long.

What's great about the Black Prince pepper is that it has a slightly sweet flavor and a similar heat profile to a Cayenne pepper. They make a great and colorful addition to fresh or cooked meals (and your garden)!

Getting Started

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.
