Mystery Pepper Plant

robertmsiegelAugust 7, 2012

Does anyone know what type of pepper plant this is? I was given this plant as a gift from a restaurant in Upstate NY, and the only thing that I can remember the chef saying is "Hungarian." I looked up Hungarian peppers, but the only one I could find was a wax pepper, but this is much hotter than those.

Thanks everyone

Yup, hot hungarian wax. The upward pointing peppers are the giveaway.

Thanks everyone. Any advice on blossom drop? added some plant food and that helped a bit

That plant gets pretty big peppers so don't expect every blossom to set fruit, the plant couldn't carry it all. Some blossom drop is normal, if you have a decent fruit set, and it looks like you do, then don't worry about it.
