Theres a drama to the Hungarian black pepper thats 100% its own. Its dark-hued skin turns to a rich jewel tone red as it ages, and it delivers a certain sweetness at maturity quite unlike other chilies in its heat range. This is a chili that fits both form and function, working beautifully as both an ornamental pepper and a culinary chili.

How hot are black Hungarian peppers?

The heat is very similar to a jalapeƱos spiciness, just with a higher floor and a somewhat higher ceiling. You wont find black Hungarian peppers when mature that are ever as mild as a jalapeƱo could be, and they can reach the heights of the mildest possible serrano pepper. This is culinary-friendly heat easily appreciated by even on the fence spicy food fans.

What do these chilies look like?

This is where black Hungarian peppers shine, truly. They have a shape much like a jalapeƱo, but with slightly thicker walls. They grow in a conical shape, up to three inches long, with a slight curve near the tip.
