My first encounter with Wenks yellow hots were as part of a rainbow stuffed pepper collection. The beautiful yellow pepper was the perfect partner with green, purple, and red jalapenos – all stuffed with garlic infused cream cheese! The taste reminds me of a crunchy jalapeño. Wenk’s Yellow Hots start pale green, yellow, and ripen red. They are most commonly eaten at the yellow stage. Early producing in SW Ohio with a heavy initial bounty. The plant will produce lighter yields well into late October or early November – if protected from frost.
