Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Chilli Pepper ‘Hungarian Black’ is an old heirloom variety which is visually stunning. Tall, upright plants with purple-veined foliage produce attractive purple flowers. Once pollinated the blooms are replaced by tapering peppers that ripen through red to an aubergine purple-black colour. The fruits are mild, with a superb flavour but only a slight kick. Use them fresh, either cooked or raw, for creating milder dishes, or dry them for use later on. Height: 75cm (30"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Flowering Months Harvest Months
Feed and water pepper plants regularly throughout the growing season to prevent the flower buds from dropping. Taller varieties of chilli peppers may require staking. Provide a thick mulch of organic matter around the base of the plants to help conserve moisture and reduce weed growth. In greenhouses, maintain high humidity by damping down paths daily. Harvest peppers singly by cutting them from the plant by with secateurs or pull the entire plant when full of red peppers, and hang upside down in the kitchen for use all year long. Peppers grown outdoors must be harvested before the first frosts.

Chilli peppers may be grown undercover in a greenhouse or polytunnel, or grown outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun. Pot up young plants and grow them on in warm frost free conditions. When plants are well grown transplant them into grow bags and containers, or plant them in well prepared beds of fertile, well drained soil. When growing chilli peppers outdoors, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to transplanting them. Space pepper plants at a distance of 50cm (20") apart.
