The Black Prince originates from Mexico. If you like chilli plants with a stunning look this would be one for you. The leaves vary in colour from green to black and the purple flowers are beautiful. First you will get black pods, but you have to let them change to red, before they are ready. A beautiful plant and will add that dash of colour to any garden and it even grows well in a pod. The mature chillies are 1-2 cm long and actually have a great taste and nice bite.
In Mexico the Black Prince are used in various local dishes, that need the flavour of chilli and a heat that won’t overpower. The heat level of this chilli is a bit over medium. Will do well in salads, great in a sandwich wrap, Mexican or Italian style cooking which needs some nice red colour for the looks and not too much heat.
Flavour wise: Very crunchy, sweet capsicum flavour
Heat level: Upper mid heat 7/15
10-12 chilli seeds per pack
