Pepper Hungarian Black

Item Number: 13625
  • Description
  • Hungarian Black produces sturdy 60cm (24") plants loaded with 8cm (3") Jalapeno shaped fruits which ripen to red. The plant produces medium heat fruits (Scoville Heat Units 5,000 to 10,000) 75 days from transplant.

    As easy to grow as tomatoes and requiring much of the same treatment. Peppers can be grown outside, so long as they are in a sheltered sunny area, but best results are usually obtained when they are grown in a polytunnel or a glasshouse. Peppers are delicious when used raw in salads but are also very tasty when cooked. They can be stuffed, roasted or added to sauces.

Where to Sow

Sow seed on the surface of a free draining compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite and place at a temperature 18-21°C until seeds germinate.

What to do next

Prick out seedlings when large enough to handle into 7cm (3in) pots and grow on underglass. Once plants reach 10cm (4in) high transplant into growbags or 25cm (10in) pots and grow on underglass. Feed once a week with tomato fertiliser once first fruits have set.


Late July to October.


Water regularly keeping compost damp not sodden. Once the fruits have begun to swell use a potassium rich feed when watering.
