Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Hungarian Yellow Sweet Wax Pepper
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.
