(65 days) Open-pollinated. Fruits so striking that seed grower Roberta Bailey kept a bowl on her table just to admire. Black when immature, the 2½"–long conical peppers ripen to lustrous garnet. Mild juicy thick-walled flesh runs with a cherry-red juice when cut. The heat, a tad less than a jalapeño, is in the ribs and seeds and is “just right for many of us,” says one customer. Jake Kennedy of Liberty, Maine, has candied slivered Czech Blacks like citrus peel for a spicy-sweet holiday treat. Bears very early with 20 pointed thick-walled peppers per 2½–3' plant. 2,000–5,000 Scovilles. ①
