The popular Hungarian Hot Wax peppers are said to come from a cross between the mild Banana Pepper and hot chili peppers and are fairly versatile and widely adaptable fruits.

These Hungarian Hot Wax pepper plants are compact, growing to around 2 ft. tall, but they are very productive with continuous sets and will even perform well in the northern climates and short-season climates. The bright Hungarian yellow wax pepper grows to about 5" long with a conical, tapered shape and has smooth, waxy skin. It can be picked at any stage of yellow, orange, and the final ripened color of red. If you plan on pickling these peppers, you will want to pick them in a light green color.

The Hungarian Hot Wax chili peppers are a Mexican favorite known for their sweet and tangy flavors and heat that's about 4 times hotter than the Jalapeño. These peppers can be used in many culinary uses such as for salsas, stuffing, frying, roasting, soups, processing, and pickling!

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
