Pepper, Hungarian Yellow Wax [Hot]

Hungarian Yellow Wax

Hot Pepper

According to historians, the Turks introduced peppers to the country of Hungary in the 16th century. This began the Hungarian love for both hot and sweet peppers such as Hungarian Sweet Wax. Several different types of Hungarian peppers are the ingredient of the spice paprika, which is made of dried, ground peppers.

Start pepper seeds indoors in peat pots about 8 weeks before the last expected spring frost. Sow them 1/4  deep and keep the soil at 80-85 degrees F until germination; provide sunlight or a grow light for 12-16 hours a day. When the outdoor temperature reaches 60-65 degrees F during the day and no less than 50 degrees F at night, transplant the seedlings 12-16 apart. Exposing the plants to the weather for several hours a day before transplanting may help prevent shock. Peppers also grow well in containers or raised beds.

 All peppers sweet or hot, has a high vitamin content in a high-fiber, low-calorie package.
