‘Hinkelhatz Red pepper has its roots in Pennsylvania’
Hinkelhatz Red originates from United States of America, and was named by its Pennsylvania Dutch growers. A rare heirloom chilli pepper which translates to ‘chicken heart’, which should describe its size and shape.
The plant grows really well in a pot to 50 cm in height and is a great producer of these cool looking chilli peppers.
First the pods start out green and end up red colour once they are mature.
This variety would be fantastic for a chilli powder, so dry the pods and powder them up, or try and pickle them. They can also be used as a cooking chilli, as they won’t overpower the dish.
All in all a great little chilli variety, a great producer and easy to grow.
