Hungarian Paprika Spice Pepper Seeds (Organic)

Versatile Spice Provider

The Hungarian Paprika Spice Pepper, a beloved heirloom variety, hails from Hungary and holds a significant place in the country's culinary heritage. This cultivar gained fame for its exceptional flavor, vibrant color, and versatility in traditional Hungarian dishes.

Within the Hungarian Paprika Spice Pepper family, there aren't distinct subspecies, but this cultivar is renowned for its specific characteristics. The plant showcases a compact, bushy appearance with glossy green foliage that transitions to shades of vibrant red, orange, or even deep crimson as the peppers ripen. The peppers themselves are elongated and slender, resembling a cone, with thin walls perfect for drying and grinding into paprika powder.

Taste-wise, the Hungarian Paprika Spice Pepper offers a rich, sweet flavor with subtle hints of earthiness and a mild heat level. When dried and ground, these peppers produce a distinct, flavorful paprika with varying degrees of heat and sweetness, depending on the specific variety and ripeness.

When planting from seed, Hungarian Paprika Spice Peppers thrive in well-draining, fertile soil with good moisture retention. Sow seeds indoors in early spring, approximately 8-10 weeks before the last frost date. Provide adequate warmth and sunlight for seedling development. Transplant the seedlings outdoors once the soil has warmed, ensuring spacing of about 18-24 inches between plants.

These peppers appreciate full sun and consistent watering throughout the growing season. Regular harvesting of ripe peppers encourages continuous production. They typically mature in around 70-80 days after transplanting.

The Hungarian Paprika Spice Pepper's vibrant appearance, rich flavor, and adaptability to varied culinary uses make it a prized addition to gardens and kitchens, especially for those seeking authentic paprika flavors in their dishes.
