A super stunning and rare variety that has us mesmerized. Just look at those colours. The fruit undergo a colour change from deep eggplant purple to pastel orange and finally to red – pods growing to a length of around 6-8cms. William Woys Weaver introduced this pepper from his grandfather’s collection. His grandfather received the pepper from African-American folk artist Horace Pippin in 1944. The plant itself grows to around 2 foot tall and has beautiful purple striated stems with purple-white striped flowers. We recommend eating it red where it becomes sweet like a usual cayenne. It’s perfect, we think, for pickling or chopping up in your favourite fiery dish. Best of all though the Buena Mulata looks amazing in the garden and will have all of your friends wanting to grow one too.
