What are the pros? The colors and flavor

What are the cons? not easy seed starting


In the past Black Hungarian pepper seeds seemed difficult for me to germinate. But, this year both saved and new seeds shot right up and grew well under lights, surviving potting-up and transplanting into the garden. An early attack of horn worms didn't do much damage or deter their growth. They are doing well in south-central MO. zone 6. I have lots of peppers, both black and luscious lipstick red. I love both colors. Even in the hot, dry, on-the-verge-of -drought present conditions I have lots of those lovely purple flowers. These are a mildly hot pepper and letting the plant wilt a bit before watering doesn't seem to increase the heat. (That's what Rezha is for!) I use these raw in salads, in cooked recipes and in chutney and pickles. I also dice several bags full and freeze for winter use. I recommend this pepper.
