Hungarian Hot Wax Banana Pepper Seeds. 72 days. Early and prolific, waxy yellow peppers ripening to orange-red. These 5 to 6 inch long fruits are 1 ½ inches at the shoulder. Fairly hot. Use for drying, processing, or sauces. Scoville units: 5,000 - 9,000. The Hungarian Hot Yellow Wax Pepper is a medium-hot pepper that also provides a sweet flavor similar to the banana pepper. A very versatile and food-friendly pepper that can be used in just about any dish. The Hungarian Wax is also excellent for pickling.

Hungarian Wax Hot Pepper Germination: Start pepper seeds indoors in peat pots about 8 weeks before the last expected spring frost. Sow them 1/4" deep and keep the soil at 80-85 degrees F until germination; provide sunlight or a grow light for 12-16 hours a day. When the outdoor temperature reaches 60-65 degrees F during the day and no less than 50 degrees F at night, transplant the seedlings 12-16" apart. Exposing the plants to the weather for several hours a day before transplanting may help prevent shock. Peppers also grow well in containers or raised beds.

Growing Hungarian Wax Hot Pepper Seeds: Keep the soil evenly moist and weeds under control; mulching the plants may help with this. If excess heat and sun cause the plants to wilt, provide shade. Hungarian Wax peppers grow well in short season climates.

Harvesting Hungarian Wax Hot Pepper: Harvesting hot peppers is basically a matter of personal preference. Generally, the longer the peppers mature on the vine, the hotter they will taste. Mature peppers, however, signal the plant to stop producing; if the peppers are picked when still at the green stage, the plant will go on producing. Always use a knife or scissors to remove peppers to prevent damage to the fragile stems. Hungarian Wax peppers are equally useful for fresh eating, preserving, or pickling.

All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.


If you can’t find germinating and instructions online you can find them on the item page. Our goal is to save money everywhere we can so we can pass those savings on to you.
