Chili Pepper 'Hungarian Yellow Wax'   

A pepper that is usually picked when it’s yellow and moderately hot. However, if left on the plant it will continue to ripen, getting red and accumulating more Scoville units. Not all of the hot peppers would do well in my foggy climate but this one is a good producer and hangs tough. I was raised in Souther California with a dad who LOVES hot peppers so I’m not entirely wimpy with peppers. This one can get plenty hot.

This planting is in the Berkeley Microclimate Successes garden .
