Hot Pepper, Szegedi 179 Paprika (Organic)
Capsicum annuum. Hot. 70 days.
This is the perfect pepper for making spicy paprika, as the name suggests. Somewhat slender, 4” long red fruit are three to four times fatter than a cayenne with blunt tips. Good flavor when fresh but excels when dried. Fruit dries very easily even in our short season, cool climate. Homemade fresh ground paprika from a Hungarian pepper, like Szegedi 179 Paprika, is a very special thing. The aroma and rich flavor are unmatched. Originally from a Hungarian seed company.
