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 plant will grow 2-3 feet tall and produces 2 ½” pods that 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 Black Czech is a beautiful pepper plant that fits both categories of ornamental and edible. You’ll end up with juicy, flavorful, conical peppers that smell aromatic and sweet. This is perfect to make salsa or sauce! You won't be disappointed with this one-of-a-kind pepper plant.

Jeanette F.

My first time to plant this variety. So far so good. I only germinated 2 seeds because I only want one plant. Both seeds germinated successfully. I germinated in wet paper towel in ziplock. I transplanted to soil when I saw the tail, and kept the plant indoor until the temp was consistent around 55+ degrees in the evenings. I gave the other plant to a friend. Both plants now have fruits. Excited for the harvest.

  • 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.
