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!

These bright red anaheim type pods grow to 6” long and ripen from green to a very bright red. They have a smoky sweet aroma and dry very well. Plants grow to 3’ tall and will produce all season until frost. Capsicum annuum (80 days) Heirloom - Open-pollinated

Heat Level: Sweet and Very Mild  Scoville 0 - 100

~ Packet contains 1 oz. seeds.  (Germ. 83% 7/2023.)

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.
