  • Description
  • RHS Award

    Hungarian Wax is a slightly mixed up pepper.The long pointed fruit starts as sweet flavour but the hotness increases on maturity to a Scoville Heat Unit rating of 5,000 to 10,000.

    As easy to grow as tomatoes and requiring much of the same treatment. Peppers can be grown outside, so long as they are in a sheltered sunny area, but best results are usually obtained when they are grown in a polytunnel or a glasshouse. Peppers are delicious when used raw in salads but are also very tasty when cooked. They can be stuffed, roasted or added to sauces.
