“Buena Mulata” is a beautiful slender pepper, a vibrant purple when immature, ripening eventually to red. The plant itself is dark green with deep purple tinges in the leaves and stronger purple in the stems. I would describe the heat as that of a cayenne.
This variety was found by William Woys Weaver in a collection left to him by his grandfather. The striped pepper “Fish” came from that same collection. The story is that the seeds were originally given to his grandfather in 1944 by his friend, an African-American folk artist, Horace Pippin.
This is one of the earliest peppers I have ever grown, and it prolifically drapes its branches with amethyst and ruby-toned fruits just as a woman festoons herself with jewels before going to the ball.
