Hungarian heirloom brought to Beaver Dam, Wisconsin in 1912 by the Joe Hussli family.
Lots and lots of sweet yet spicy peppers on compact plants. Fruits are horn-shaped, average 6 inches long and 2 1/2 inches at the shoulder, tapering to a blunt point. They ripen from lime green to red at full maturity. Sweet, robust flavor shines through the slow-building heat.
First fruits mature 80 days after transplanting, at which point they ripen from lime-green to red. Crunchy fruits are mildly spicy, with sweet overtones. Great for making fresh batches of tangy salsas. Also an excellent choice for making your own paprika!
