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.

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

What are the pros? Very Purple, good flavor

What are the cons? Very thin stems

Review:

I got a few of these growing. They don't seem to like pots, but the ones in the beds are very productive. Be sure to provide support, as they're pretty spindly. The heat is good and long, and the color is fantastic. I'm excited to grow these.

What are the pros? beautiful, delicious, early

What are the cons? none

Review:

These truly are the most beautiful peppers. The blossoms are a gorgeous purple, and the chilis emerge bright green, but with exposure to the sun turn a true purple. Eventually, the peppers will shift from purple, to pinkish, to red. They are delicious at all points in their growth cycle. They are quite spicy! I grew 5 plants from seed. Two of them had long, thick, mostly straight peppers, and the rest had much more slender peppers that tended to grow in a crescent shape. Absolutely easy to grow, early producer, and zero issues with diseases or pests. Like another reviewer, I also adore the fish pepper, and this one is just as beautiful, if not more so, than that gem.
