Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Black Hungarian Pepper Seeds
Capsicum annuum Black Hungarian Pepper Seeds (70-80 days)
.25 grams per seed package/Seed Package Contains Approx. 40 seeds.
Black Hungarian pepper is so colorful that it not only belongs in the garden, but on the patio in pots as well. It is a great showpiece that can be used as a flowerbed border as well. The emerald green foliage is highlighted by purple flowers and later red fruit. Well, actually the fruit is green, then black and finally red! So cool! (see the picture)
Black Hungarian peppers grow about 30-36" tall. Mild heat and great flavor. We dry the peppers and grind them into our own spicy organic Hungarian paprika.
Organic California Grown Heirloom Black Hungarian got a slow start this year because of the cooler than normal summer nights, but then took off. I honestly didn't know what to expect from these peppers and should have planted out more, because now we are addicted to the sweet-hot-spicy flavor. I wouldn't recommend transplanting them out till late May or early June even here in the Bay area. At harvest, remove the seed cut into strips and dry on a fruit dryer for making your own paprika. Once they are really dry, we zip them up in a coffee grinder. You need a lot of peppers to make just a tiny bit of powder so plan ahead.
