This Hungarian heirloom from 1941 is the traditional pickling type. It is very long, bright yellow, and thick walled. Not a pickler? Enjoy it fresh as a snack or in salads, throw it on the grill, or use in any recipe calling for sweet pepper. Peppers will turn to a orange-red if left on the plant. A good short-season choice and successful in containers.
