We do have yellow wax peppers varieties that are great in pickles, including the famous Cascabella peppers.
Here are some of our favorite Wax Peppers:
We also have Hot Hungarian Wax Pepper Seeds, which are similar wax peppers but have a lot of heat.
Great for pickling or for making the delicious
Hungarian Hot Peppers in Oil Recipe:
Just add wax peppers, fresh garlic, oregano and salt to Olive Oil and store in a glass jar in the fridge.
You can also salt the peppers first and draw the moisture out of them in a colander for a few hours. You can also roast them first, and peel before jarring them. We usually just throw all the ingredients in a jar and let them sit in the fridge for at least a week or two.
Preserved wax peppers are great for sandwiches, wraps, salads, on warm, fresh baked bread, anything really!
We also have Banana Peppers which are great pickled
or marinated in oil (see recipe above).
Hungarian Wax Pepper vs Banana Pepper
Banana peppers look and taste much like the sweet Hungarian Wax as they are quite mild reaching only 0-500 Scovilles.
For a smaller hot pepper that is similar to Cascabella peppers, you could also grow the beautiful Santa Fe Grand Pepper. This colorful pepper has three colors of maturity: first yellow, then orange, and red, and they can all be on the plant at the same time. This is one of our customer favorites as it's easy to grow and very productive.
These are all similar to cascabella peppers, just a big bigger, which we think is easier for dicing and picking.
