A prolific producer of small fruits, ¾" wide by 1-2" long, tapering to a blunt point, ripen from green to glossy red. The pods are covered with tiny bumps and wrinkles. The plant is bush-like, small and compact, measuring 1 1/2 to 2 feet tall. Cold tolerant, lending itself to a longer season than the average hot pepper, with resistance to pests and disease.

 

Cultivated by the Pennsylvania Dutch (*Dutch is actually a corruption of Deutsch, i.e. German, not as in from the Netherlands) since the 1880s. The name translates as "chicken heart".

 

Its flavor is described as “stocky” and is considered medium hot. Traditionally used for pickling and making pepper vinegar. The Pennsylvania Dutch cooked and pureed it to make a pepper vinegar, a condiment often sprinkled on sauerkraut. Though its production area has spread across the country, the seeds are still not mainstream; they are listed as a Slow Food USA variety.

Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!

 

I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

Zero out of pocket expense.

91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.

Not every home qualifies, but if you are even slightly interested in learning if your home does, please click the link below which will redirect you to a new page and have the best salesman I have ever met give you a call. His name is James Johns and you have my word that he is ethical, honest and sincere.

Yes, I will get a referral bonus if you end up purchasing. But guess what? SO WILL YOU!
