Pepper - Alma Paprika - Capsicum annuum
Tender Annual This beautiful pepper is perfect for drying and grinding into tasty paprika. The hardy, vigorous bushes produce high yields of uniform red peppers that start out creamy white, then ripen from orange to bright red when fully mature. The fruit is a thick-walled sweet cherry type pepper. These peppers make a sweet, but spicy addition to many dishes.
Soil and Water: Peppers require deeply worked, well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter and a pH of 6.0-6.8. Water deeply, but don't over water.
Planting and Growing: Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Stake to keep fruit off the ground and mulch for disease and weed control.
Harvesting and Storage: Harvest the first fruits early to encourage continued production through the season. Cut (don't pull) the fruit from the stems. Harvestable from the yellow stage through the color changes.
