Paprika - is easy to grow and wonderful when dried and made into a powder for flavoring foods. There is nothing that compares to fresh Paprika powder.

NuMex R. Naky is used as a paprika cultivar in New Mexico because of its low heat level and its high level of red pigments. The NMSU CPI has just improved the NuMex R. Naky for brighter color and larger yields. It is now called the NuMex Vince Hernandez pepper and that is what we are offering now. The NM paprika crop is dehydrated and crushed into powder for use in a wide variety of food products and make-up. Uses include salsas, sauces, used whole, pickled, flakes, powdered and in goulash!

Gigantic harvest

Have been growing paprika peppers for years. This year planted 8 plants to be sure I had enough for paprika powder during the coming year. OMG. Just beginning the cooler fall temps when peppers have a huge production in my Zone 9A garden. I’ve started giving away regular and smoked paprika powder. I’ll be swamped with peppers for 2023. This is now our go-to choice for paprika. You can not go wrong.

Makes the best paprika I've ever had!

Zone: 6b
Germination rate: >85%
I wanted to grow my own paprika peppers to make family recipes from my Austro-Hungarian Great-Grandma. I'm so happy with these as they are productive and have amazing flavor complexity and the flavor transitions from sharp when first tasting to sweet when on the tongue longer. After turning red on the plant, I removed the seeds, dehydrated the pepper, and ground into paprika. Makes the best chicken paprikash you'll ever have!
Much more productive than other paprika varieties that I grew so will definitely grow these again!

Surprisingly prolific

I ususlly grow Alma for my dmoked paprika, but decided to give these a shot this year. Holy peppers, batman! These were crazy prolific! I've never seen do many fruits on one plant! They ripened very slowly, so i only got a few for the smoking project. However, they make excellent mild roasted red pepper! I will grow them for that purpose every year!
