Hungarian Yellow Sweet Wax Pepper (65 days)

Hungarian Wax Peppers are a creamy-yellow translucent color, very similar to the Banana Wax Pepper.

However, these two peppers differ in heat, color and size.

The Hungarian Wax has a thin skin with a thick flesh due to its immaturity. Picked at an immature stage, the Hungarian Wax Pepper is yellow and has a sweet hot flavor varying from warm to moderately hot.

During the 65 day Hungarian Wax Pepper maturing stage the color changes to an orange-red and the heat rises to an almost inedible intense heat while keeping its sweetness.

Although the pepper can be eaten at any stage, the Hungarian Wax Pepper is most popular in the yellow stages.

This pepper is traditionally pickled or made into yellow mole sauces.

Planting Tips for Heirloom Sweat Peppers:

Start these vegetable seeds indoors about 6-8 weekds before your last frost date.  Be sure to keep them in a warm place so that the soil temperature stays above 75°.  Young heirloom pepper plants like it to stay warm and will develope well if kept happy.

Only transplanted after the heirloom pepper seedlings have shown several sets of their true leaves and only once you are sure the outside soil temperature is consistently above 65°. 

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
