Beaver Dam - A Hungarian heirloom pepper that is mildly hot and tastes like a bell pepper with a hint of heat. It is horn shaped, 6” long and 2-1/2“ wide at the shoulder. Peppers start off bright green and mature to red when ripe. Compact plants grow only 18” tall. The Beaver Dam pepper was brought to Beaver Dam, Wisconsin in 1912 by the Hussli family. It is crunchy and sweet with slow building mild heat. Perfect for stuffing, in traditional goulash, or for magnificent pickled peppers. Beaver Dam's flavor will make it worthy of your garden!
