The sweetest, biggest, most beautiful sweet pepper you'll ever grow. The fruits are huge, about 7 inches long, with color that transitions from green to orange to bright red and finally to deep red. They have thick walls and outstanding mild, sweet flavor. The plants bear early and prolifically. This superb pepper was presented to us by Margaret Gubin, a long-time Jung customer from Cambria, Wisconsin, who urged us to produce it for our customers. The original seed was hand-carried from Hungary to the U.S. by a family member and seed stock was carefully maintained by Margaret for over 50 years.

    Big, sweet fruits. Wonderful flavor, especially raw. This has been my favorite pepper for two years now.

    The substituted variety is NOT anywhere near as good as the actual Margarets Pepper. I will not buy or recommend this if Jung's continues to substitute.

    We should have adequate supply of Margaret's Pepper for the 2013/14 season.

    Great Heirloom pepper and very hardy. May not produce what the hybrids do, but the taste is great raw or fried.

    The substitute for this product showed no resemblance to Marg. Pepper.

    In 2008 and 2009 Whitney Pepper was substituted for Margaret's Pepper because of the low germination rates.
    Whitney was selected because both are sweet Hungarian types - Whitney is the largest type of sweet Hungarian we could obtain to substitute.
    **As of this date, we are not substituting a different pepper for Margaret's Pepper.**
