Yellow Hinkelhatz Pepper

         
 
2 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
This hot spicy Pennsylvania Dutch heirloom pepper was acquired by my grandfather from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania relatives about 1935. It was mentioned as early as 1832 as an ideal pepper for pickling or as an addition to hot sauces. The 2 to 2 ½ feet tall bushes produce a super-abundance of 1 ¼ inch pods shaped like chicken hearts (Hinkelhatz in Pennsylvania Dutch) and about the same size. This is the yellow version of the more common red Hinkelhatz (there is also an orange strain), and like its red counterpart, it ripens late in the season. Ideal for growing in tubs.

Review:

The Yellow Hinkelhatz peppers were a nice addition to my annual collection of hot peppers. They are definitely on the hotter side of any of the peppers I’ve been growing this season. However, they don’t have much in the way of flavor. But I suppose they are primarily used for pickling anyways. They are a nice yellow color, if you are patient and can wait for them to mature a little later. They weren’t very productive for me, but that might be a result of being placed next to some lemon drop pepper plants that grew taller and were blocking light later in the season. The Hinkelhatz are shorter and would benefit from being grown in containers as opposed to beds where I had them.

What are the pros? Low maintenance, productive

What are the cons? Poor/slow germination

Review:

I had to try starting these twice and had nearly given up on the second go when they finally sprouted. Other varieties that I started at the same time and in the same conditions germinated and grew much faster. Next year, I may have to invest in a heat mat and see if that helps. Once they got going, they caught up to the other varieties that I planted, the plants are loaded and they started turning yellow not long after my other peppers started turning. They are HOT but have a nice flavor as well. Can't wait to try cooking with them.
