Originally from Hungary where they are used in the various local dishes that need the flavour of chilli but not per se the heat of a hot dish. You can use this chilli fresh offcourse but also dried or powder it and make a paprika like powder out of it.
The heat level of this chilli is not too hot. Will do well in salads, great in Hungarian Goulash dish or any Asian rice dish, which needs some nice red colour for the looks and not too much heat.
The plant produces beautiful purple flowers and the chilli pods go from black to dark red over time. The full ripen pods look like the Jalapeno pods. When fully grown the Hungarian Black Chilli can grow up to 50 – 80 cm high and you should be able to get a lot of fresh fruit during the chilli season which lasts approximate 4 to 6 months.
Belongs to the Genus and species of Capsicum Annuum
