4″ pots only

A rare Pennsylvania Dutch heirloom. 'Hinkelhatz' (chicken heart) is a description of its size and shape. Over 150 years old. Flavor is “stocky”, quite hot. Traditionally used exclusively for pickling. The PA Dutch cooked and pureed it to make pepper vinegar sprinkled on sauerkraut. Prolific and cold tolerant, longer season than the average hot pepper. 1 1/4 inches in length tapering to a blunt point. Compact bush-like plant, 1 1/2 to 2 feet tall. 88 days. Open-pollinated.
