Buena Mulata Hot Pepper

A very rare, extremely productive, and stunning hot pepper being offered exclusively through Baker Creek! William Woys Weaver introduced us to this pepper from his grandfather's collection. His grandfather received the pepper from African-American folk artist Horace Pippin in 1944. A chameleon like pepper that undergoes color changes during ripening; violet to pinkish-flesh color, then orange changing to brown, and eventually to a deep red. The long, round pods reach 6 to 7 inches in length and undergo a unique flavor change as they ripen as well--with the reds being more sweet and meatier than the violet. The stunning plants also make wonderful potted specimens.

What are the pros? Prolific, stunning, tasty

What are the cons? Cooks to a weird color.

Review:

These were by far the most prolific item in my garden last year. I sowed in March, transferred in April, and had peppers in early summer. Then the peppers didn't stop. I harvested buckets and buckets of buena mulatas from just six plants. AMAZING. I made tasty bright pink hot sauce and pickled them with my purple okra as well, resulting in a bright pink liquid. Overall, these peppers come highly recommended. When you cook them, they will turn a weird blueish-white color that looks really weird. These will not be ornamental in a cooked dish, but they WILL be delicious! Palate-forward sharp spice with a light sweetness.

Review:

I gotta say I just loved buena mulata last summer. Very productive, healthy 3' plants, with gorgeous purple to orange to red ripening--and the flavor at all stages memorable--with a smokey/hot/sweet thing going on. I’d guess the heat is hotter than a regular jalape?o. For me, one buena mulata finely chopped in scrambled eggs with chopped onion, tomato, cheese & ham really started my day off well. May I brag a little? Buena mulata--in the very fetching purple stage--won a blue ribbon for us at the Bates County Fair last July. Production dropped a bit during hot August days, but picked right up in September. It was loaded when frost came. I regret I ran out of steam and didn’t transplant to bring in from the cold. Buena was a small enough bush; I think it would have transplanted well into a bucket to keep going a few more months. Ah well, I certainly intend to grow buena mulata again. I am most grateful to William Woys Weaver and Baker Creek for making this pepper available.

What are the pros? Compact size/drought tolerance

What are the cons? n/a

Review:

I grew these this summer and wound up using them as a base cayenne style pepper for fermented hot sauce. Purple peppers are milder than ripe but less fruity. Tried a ripe one raw and I was hurting pretty good for around 15 minutes; I would say a 6.5/10 on my personal heat scale. The flavor is excellent and I will always grow these as long as I make my hot sauce. Plants are compact and very attractive. Next summer we plan to put these in flower beds around the house to serve as productive ornamental plants. Drought tolerance was very good as this summer in Kansas was very dry. From my experience this year I would even go as far to say that there were more ripe peppers during the first, drier half of the summer. Grow these!

Review:

This is my first year growing these peppers. Very healthy upright plants have not needed support or special care. Prolific producer of purple peppers, none have changed to red yet though. It seems to take a long time to change. As I've only been able to harvest a dozen peppers so far. They have heat that is nice and not overwhelming. I've pickled and fermented some and the pepper looses some of its purple in the jar. Can't wait to see these next year. Beautiful pepper.

Review:

I started these late because I had misplaced the seeds, they took off and caught up about mid summer. They produced a ridiculous amount of beautiful purple peppers. They were hot, but not overly. A pleasant heat. I let a few get red and they did get fairly hot. I will grow these again for sure.
