Zippy and snappy, the Hungarian Hot Wax Pepper offers a little sweet and a little heat, producing loads of peppers earlier than other varieties. Long 6" tapered fruit ripens from green to creamy yellow, which is when it’s just getting zippy. If you leave it be, it will keep going to orange and then red, increasing the heat with each color change. Thin-skinned, meaty, and crunchy. Try pickling in apple cider vinegar, frying up with onions to top an omelet, or stuffing with prosciutto and provolone.
