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)!

Every Seed Sprouted & Growing Healthily

Planted all of them after a brief water submersion (8-12 hours). There was a perfect circle of happy pepper growth within about two weeks. They are slow growers but already exhibit beautiful coloring.

Great quality!

Can't wait to try'em.

Beautiful Plant!

100% germination... some are growing faster than others, seems better suited for pots, as those are doing the best.
Definitely one of the most beautiful plants in the garden!

Good Job

Appreciate the quick service, can’t rate the peppers yet l live in Michigan! Peppers just sprouts! Service was awesome.Germination rate hard to tell? Hopefully more will sprout, using a heat mat but peppers are always tough to start!
