Pepper 'Black Hungarian' have a dry heat when they are black and are sweet and spicy after turning red. This Hungarian heirloom grows fruits that are 2 to 3 inches long in the shape of jalapeños and are ranked at 5,000 to 10,000 units on the Scoville scale. Some say that they are spicer than a jalapeño, but we found them to be less spicy in our garden. The flowers are an unusual deep purple.
Sowing Pepper Seeds:
Sow seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost date, 1/4 inch deep. Transplant the peppers 2 weeks after the last frost date or when there is no hint of frost. Space 15 inches apart. Full sun.
