An Ark of Taste, Slow Food variety. Our favorite mildly hot pepper. We use them in just about every dish during the season! Christian describes it as: “LITERALLY THE BEST PEPPER IN THE WORLD.”

The Beaver Dam Pepper is a Hungarian heirloom pepper that was brought to Beaver Dam, Wisconsin in 1912 by the Joe Hussli family. The pepper’s first fruits mature 80 days after transplanting, at which point they ripen from lime-green to red. The crunchy fruits are mildly hot and when seeded, they hold an excellent flavor. Rated as 3 on a heat scale of 1-5, the Beaver Dam is great for making fresh batches of cool and tangy salsas.

SHU: 500-1,000
