The Buena Mulata is a beautiful ornamental heirloom hot pepper that closely resembles a classic cayenne, except for its early purple color.

Buena Mulata pods can grow to be 6-7 inches long and plants can be grown in containers or garden beds. Watching them mature from purple to pinkish-yellow to brown and finally deep red is a truly fun and unique experience. The longer you let the fruit ripen, the sweeter and meatier it gets.

Purple Mulatas are most sought after for their looks but the flavor is quite good for an ornamental. They have heat similar to cayennes but more sweetness, which makes for an interesting twist on crushed pepper flakes or fresh salsa.

Makes wonderful powder!!

I grew these for the first time this year. High germination rate and high yield. I love the way they start purple, then lighten up and turn orange or red when ripe. I’ve been impressed so far. I believe I will be adding this to my yearly rotation. I cut them in half and put them in the dehydrator for 12 hours at 125F. Then into the spice blender. It has a wonderful smoky and sweet aroma and taste. Love to sprinkle it on about anything. I could never go back to store bought cayenne powder now. This will be a staple in my spice drawer going forward. Highly recommended.
