Hot Hungarian Wax Pepper Seeds
Big and juicy banana-shaped waxy peppers grow 5” long on 3’ tall plants. Ripens from pale yellow to deep golden orange and finally cherry red. Very productive even in cool weather. Great for short seasons. This pepper originated from Hungary in 1941 and is also known as Hot Banana Wax. For milder peppers with less heat, harvest early when pale green-yellow. As the pepper matures to red it gets hotter. These look like sweet Hungarian peppers and the only way to tell them apart is the heat! Pickle all three colors for a beautiful hot-pepper medley—a staple for winter sandwiches. Capsicum annuum. (68 days)
Heat Level: Hot. Scoville 5,000–10,000 Open-pollinated, heirloom.
~ Packet contains 10 seeds. $2.49
We also have Sweet Hungarian Wax Pepper seeds if you want to tame the heat.
In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart in the garden, or into large 5-gallon containers. Harvest peppers when they are green, orange or red.
All of our seeds are GMO-free.
