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.

Planted these seeds 8 weeks ago. They are growing great and I can't wait to plant them out in the garden. Bring on the warm weather

Getting Started

So, you've received your seeds and are wondering what's next? At Pepper Joe's, we're committed to equipping you with everything you need to succeed in germinating the pepper seeds you've chosen. Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
