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 natural sweetness, which makes for an interesting twist on crushed pepper flakes or fresh salsa.

Gorgeous looking peppers

These are doing great I wish I could post pictures ! Very mild pepper when purple but has very good flavor, plant is loaded with flowers and peppers can't wait tell they Ripen! Germinating pepper seeds can take a long time you have to have patience, I use heat mats, dome , and a decent light, once started they love hot days in the sun with moist roots through the night Thanks !!

So far so good

All the Buena Mulata seeds have sprouted. They seem a bit more resilient than some of the other peppers I ordered. None of the plants have produced peppers yet, but it's still a bit early.

Mostly good

I ordered a variety hot pepper seeds and planted them almost immediately upon getting them. All of the varieties have sprouted except for the Fushimi Sweets. My wife is the most disappointed with this because most of the other peppers I got are super hots and I got an interesting sweet pepper for her. I am still very excited for these peppers to grow and produce. I will be ordering from you guys again!
