The peppers grow from black to red when mature but quite small, reaching only about a 1/2-inch long. They have a slightly sweet flavor and similar heat profile to a Cayenne pepper. They make a great and colorful addition to meals (and your garden)!

Beautiful plant.

5 planted, 4 sprouted, 2 I continued growing. The others i gave to friends.

This is by far one of the most beautiful plants in my garden, i am asked about it ALL the time. The flavor is sweet and about as hot as a jalapeño, maybe a bit hotter but not by much. Even if you dont want to eat any the black green leaves and bright purple flowers and tiny black/red peppers popping out, its just amazing in a garden, i think i may trim my walk way to the front door in these next year.

Only problem i have had with these plants is it is a favorite of local aphids. I have been using a Neem oil and soap spray, this helps for about a week, then i have to spray again.

I have 16+ varieties of Peppers in my garden this year, and this and the chinese 5 color are by far the most beautiful.

Germination tips, use a starter tent with lights and heat pads. I start mine in an organic potting soil mix in 2.5in thick walled pots, with good drainage, and a humidity lid (a clear plastic cup). Keeping consistent temp and good moisture are extremely important with some of the more difficult plants. The old moist paper towel in a bag trick never seemed to work well for me.

Definitely going to be buying again. They are just too beautiful to not grow again.

Beautiful plant

Got these seeds just to add a splash of interest in my pepper garden. I planted 6 seeds, had 5 grow. They are only about a month old so far, and just got transfered from my grow tent to the garden. Had no issues transplanting them, no stunted growth or anything. Once out in the sun the leaves started turning a much deeper purple/black. They look amazing next to my Chocolate Bhutlah and reaper peppers. Cant wait to try them when they grow up a bit more.

Hard to germinate

I got 1 plant to sprout and it is beautiful, but overall it was hard to germinate even with a heat mat and ideal conditions. I had hopes for at least 2 of these plants. Received the seeds quickly.

Hello, hot pepper seeds can be picky about germination environments. The biggest things they are picky about is soil temp of 80-85* and keep i mind they can take up to 6 weeks to germinate.

Having a difficult start

Thirteen varieties of hot peppers started. This little Black Prince is the most difficult so far. We had a low germination rate. And one single plant that doesn't want to grow like all the others. Looking for info or ideas. These peppers are a nice visual addition to hot pickled chutney.
