Hinklehatz Red Chili Seeds

Information: The Hinkelhatz chili pepper has its roots in Amish country in Pennsylvania and "hinkel hatz" is Pennsylvania Dutch for "chicken heart" and it describes the pepper well. It`s tiny (3 to 4 cm in length) and conical - a shape much like a chicken`s heart. This heirloom has a moderate, but certainly punchy heat (think cayenne at its highest), and its main uses among the Pennsylvania Dutch is pickling and hot pepper vinegars. But they also work well in salsas, spicy dishes as well as for filling and BBQ.

Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 8-21 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised, permeable soil, and do not tolerate waterlogging. They should be planted in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight - preferably more. Put the plants outside approx. 2 to 3 weeks after the last frost. As the plants have a particularly long maturation period, it is recommended to grow them in a pot, so that you can easily bring the plant inside when the temperature falls below 12°C during the day, allowing all the fruits to ripen. To keep the plant over the winter, cut it back by 20cm after harvesting and place in a light place where it is at least 15°C.

You can find plenty of useful tips for successfully growing chili plants in our Chili Cultivation Instructions and in the Chili Diary.
