Hot Pepper, 'Czech Black'


The most productive field hot pepper we’ve grown in the PNW for 10 years running. Maturing from glossy black to a glowing garnet red color and perfect for ristras and fresh use in place of the slightly spicier Jalapenos. Bears fruit weeks before all our other hot peppers. Juicy, med-thick walled, and perfect for pickling. Great eating quality in both color stages.
65 days green, 80 days dark red. UO
