PP694A - Beaver Dam
This Hungarian heirloom arrived in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, with the Hussli family in 1912. Its horn-shaped fruits are mildly hot at 500-1,000 SHUs, but removing the seeds and pith from the fruits puts the accent on their sweet flavour and crisp texture. The fruits average 15cm (6") long, about 6cm (2.5") wide at the shoulder, and tapering to a blunt point. The compact plants are very well adapted for cool, short season growing, and are highly productive.

How To Grow
Peppers are tropical plants that need lots of heat and attention to detail when starting them. Well grown in a warm summer, they are the gardener’s triumph. Interestingly, the hot peppers often do better in a cool summer than the large bell peppers. If the hot peppers have not coloured up fully on your plants, pull up the whole plant and hang in a warm dry area. Follow along with this handy How to Grow Peppers from seeds guide and grow spicy and sweet delight.
