(C. annuum) (70 - 80 days) A beautiful Hungarian heirloom that is highly ornamental, with its purple-veined foliage, purple flowers and 3-4" jalapeno shaped fruits that start out black (dark purple) and ripen to a beautiful crimson red. Plants grow to 36". Medium-hot, great flavour. This is one of our favourite peppers- ornamental enough to put in your flower garden but productive as well. A good substitute for Jalapeno if you want something different and only have a small garden.
