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:

Ive tried growing various peppers from seed with no luck, so my hopes were not that high when I ordered these, but they are so pretty, and the reviews helped make my decision. I started these in late march under grow lights and put them out in the greenhouse late april. By May 20th they were transplanted. Today they are about 2 feet tall. Very dainty plant, but prolific producer of peppers. Will add this to my regular grow list.

Review:

I am growing several Buena Mulata plants this season and could not be more pleased. We had a heat wave with temps lingering at 105 for a week or so without a single drop of rain. These little peppers didn't seem to mind and are producing abundantly. They are not finicky regarding heat or water, but do demand exposure to direct light for a large portion of the day. I have a plant in a more shady area and it is not thriving like the ones I have in the blaring New Mexico sun. The peppers have medium heat but incredible, complex flavor. I picked a handful while still purple and made a monochromatic Pico De Gallo with red onion and purple tomato. A super fun addition to fish tacos!

Review:

This pepper is one of the prettiest plants in my garden. The purple flowers are uncommon and charming while the foliage is more delicate than most pepper plants. It looks more like an ornamental than a productive plant. The numerous, vivid purple peppers do change color and make a great display. It's a keeper for the fruit, too. I'll be growing it again.

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!
