Hinkelhatz, organic seeds
"Chicken Heart" says a lot about how the fruit looks. Bright red, 3-4 cm long and 2 cm wide, slightly dented and with a blunt tip. It ripens directly from green to red and has a thick flesh with a fruity aroma. It is really strong and rarely eaten raw, but is used mainly for pickles, salsa, chutney, chilli vinegar, etc. The beautiful plant, which provides lots of fruit, is compact, 30-40 cm tall, and suitable for pots. Hinkelhatz is a very old variety, described already in 1611 and was given it's name by German immigrants in Pennsylvania, USA.
