  • Dark Beauty is a new cross by Enrique at Mojo Pepper. This new variety is the result of a cross between BBG7 MAMP x Peach Congo 7 pot, and was released in a very early filial generation. I estimate that the seeds I have now are at F3. The fruit that two of two plants bore matched each other and also the photo that Mojo Pepper features on its site for this variety. This does not mean that the variety is stable, however! Please note that you could get different colors or shapes from a pepper at the F3 generation. As both parents were screamingly hot, heat should be retained in the subsequent generations, barring an accidental outcross along the way.
    Several of Enrique’s varieties look similar to me. Dark Beauty and Mojo Blackie both have dark plants and dark unripe fruits. The ripe fruits remind me of glowing embers, with red glowing out from the black. In shape, my Mojo Blackie fruits are longer and thinner, and the flesh was not as hot. This one is quite hot and beautiful.
