The Hungarian Sweet pepper plant will grow to a height of 24-48”, depending on growing conditions.

In most USDA hardiness zones, it is best to start Hungarian Wax Sweet pepper seeds indoors 8 to 10 weeks before your last frost date and to set them out into the garden when nighttime temperatures are reliably above 60 degrees F. Pepper plants do not tolerate frost, so they are grown as an annual plant in most zones. However, they can be grown as a perennial in tropical regions.
