Buena Mulata Hot Pepper

         
 
38 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
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? 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.

What are the pros? Very pretty in pepper mixes!

What are the cons? Short-lived...

Review:

Altough not that special in taste (hot semi-arid region), they are incredibly beautiful both as a pot plant and in pepper mixes that I sell at the local market. Short-lived.

Review:

This did well in large pots -- huge number of peppers this year with no sign of stopping now in late August. Gorgeous, and great taste. And enough branches to add to pretty i bouquets too! I will always grow these!
