Also known as the Czechoslovakian black pepper, this is a unique, beautiful, black-red colored pepper that packs amazing, surprising heat when it is ripe. This is an exceptional pepper plant that you must grow for landscaping or show off your garden to friends and family. The pods are deep, rich purple-black colors with shiny skin and a plum shape just bigger than a Jalapeno. The Czech Black will ripen from purple/glossy black to a ruby red color when fully matured. As it matures, the heat is significantly different. During its purple/black stage, its heat and taste will be similar to a Jalapeno, but it is much hotter when it fully matures to its red color. The plant will grow 2-3 feet tall and produces 2 ½” pods, and you’ll end up with juicy, flavorful, conical peppers that smell aromatic and sweet. This is perfect to make salsa or sauce!
The Black Czech is a beautiful pepper plant that fits both categories of being ornamental and edible. You won't be disappointed with this one-of-a-kind pepper plant.
