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!
Too soon to tell.
Black Prince Pepper Seeds
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.
