Regular price $4.45 Sale

Czech Black Hot Pepper (Capsicum annuum) This is a very early producer of 2.5 inch long conical black fruit ripening to a strikingly garnet red hue. A bit less of a heat kick from this Czech (2000-5000 Scovilles) versus the Jalapeno or Hungarian Hot Wax. This is a very popular hot pepper, we have grown it every year on the Nova Scotia farm.

Scoville heat units (SHU): 2,000 – 5,000

60-65 days to maturity

25 seeds per packet $4.45
