Buena Mulata Hot Pepper

Exclusive listing with Baker Creek! This pepper classic was acquired in 1944 from African-American folk artist Horace Pippin. The long, narrow pods undergo chameleon-like color changes from purple, to pink, pale yellow, orange, brown, and then finally dark red. Highly ornamental, its high-test heat is counterbalanced with complex flavors. Ideal for salsa morada or Caribbean style cookery, this is the first time we have released seed from the Roughwood Collection. The 24-inch bushes should be planted 15 inches apart. By purchasing you help support Dr. Weavers work.

What are the pros? Beautiful peppers and flowers!

What are the cons? Not particularly robust plant

Review:

I grow this in the back of my greenhouse so it only gets strong light in the morning. I am not a very good pepper grower, so take this review with a grain of salt :) The flowers and peppers are incredibly beautiful. They start out purple and become red as they ripen. Although I have other plants in this area of my greenhouse this one seems to be a bit more leggy. However, I'm pretty bad at growing peppers and I would still recommend growing this pepper even for purely ornamental purposes.

Review:

I grew these last summer in my container garden in Brooklyn. I get at most 4 hours of sun in the summer but generally have success with peppers - I have grown many different types over the years. This is by far the most beautiful. The blossoms are purple, and the fruit go from green to a stunning purple and finally to red. We used them in both the purple and red phases. The flavor is spicy and fruity. These peppers produced earlier than all my other chilis, and kept on through late fall. The bees love them, and they truly are the most stunning plant. So happy I tried these!

Review:

i am not a huge hot peppers fan, but i enjoy eating some spicy food once in a while, BUT! i have a friend that is a spicy food freak, he had lots of chills, he said that his favorite chili pepper is the Thai chili pepper, well, that's now changed, he tasted the Buena Mulata and told me its the tastiest chili he ever eaten! :) so if he approves the taste, it tells me that the chili is good. now the one thing that i would recommend doing regarding this chili is removing his early blooms, so he can establish a good stem, he started fruiting so fast, that his stem was too thin, after i removed his flowers, he redirected the energy to the stem, he got fat and strong, then after three weeks of removing flower, i let him go crazy, i still stacked him, but he was strong and produced good amount of chili's in my balcony, which has on average 5 hours of sun light! highly recommend this one, great chili, very special/complex taste, if you are a chili person, try it out.

Review:

I was amazed by this pepper. It is an early producer and was pumping out peppers in mid spring while I was waiting for my other types to grow. Pepper production has continued until the present (mid-September.) The peppers are beautiful--bright purple which later turn to red. I like to use the red chilies for arrabiata sauce--an Italian pasta sauce. The thin chilies look great whole in the sauce and the flavor is outstanding. I want to keep growing these.

Up here at 46N, peppers are a challenge. I grow these in a raised bed in a greenhouse. Fantastic results. Beautiful plant, tall, vigorous, laden with peppers
