Zulu Pepper-(Capsicum annuum)-The Zulu Pepper comes to us from an unknown area of Eastern Europe. The plant produces almost jet-black (dark purple) bell pepper type fruits that ripen eventually to dark red. But the fruity flavor is still present with either color. However, there is fruitier flavor when red. The unique thing is the Zulu pepper has just a touch of spiciness to it. The Zulu chile pepper is great for roasting, stuffing, frying, salads, and fresh salsa. The Zulu chile plants are very productive and grow just over 2 feet tall. They will require some staking as they bear very heavy peppers.
