Paprika - Sweet
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.
This variety of Paprika has a pod type similar to an anahiem pepper. It is an improved variety and there is a lot more flesh and delicious flavor. It also has an ever so slight hint of heat.
The 5" long and 2" wide peppers are sweet when fresh, and a rich smokey flavor when dried. Tall 36" plants will produce all season until frost. Capsicum annuum (80 days) Heirloom - Open-pollinated
Heat Level: Sweet and Very Mild Scoville 100
~ Packet contains 30 seeds. The picture on our packet is misleading. We are offering a much better quality paprika for your garden, not the Hungarian as pictured.
In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart in the garden, or into large 5 gallon containers. Harvest peppers when they are completely red.
All of our seeds are GMO-free.
