Hungarian Wax peppers have a wonderful flavor and a fairly wide range in heat from about 3,000-10,000 Scoville Units. We like to eat them fresh, pickle them for a zesty topping or dry them and grind them into a spicy paprika powder.
We brought the parent seed of these peppers home from a trip to visit our cousins in Hungary where they are often eaten raw as an accompaniment to most any meal.
Hungarian Wax peppers grow well either in the garden or in a large container.
(Approximately 20 seeds per packet)
Planting Instructions: We recommend starting peppers indoors in a sunny and warm location 4-6 weeks before last frost in spring. Plant outdoors in full sun after danger of frost in spring. Note: pepper seeds need soil temperatures to be at least 70 F to germinate and we use a heating pad under the seedling tray to maintain temperature.
