Named for their pendant fruits the size and shape of chicken's hearts - which is the translation of hinkelhatz - this hot pepper is a rare Pennsylvania Dutch heirloom dating to before 1880. The Hinkelhatz has a delicious stocky, spicy flavor. The peppers were traditionally used in pickled form as well as cooked and pureed into a "pepper vinegar" similar to Tabasco sauce. This Hinkelhatz sauce was used on sauerkraut and other Pennsylvania Dutch dishes. The pepper matures 105 days from transplant. Despite its culinary history in the United States, the pepper is currently only offered by one seed
