(Capsicum annuum)

This hot pepper variety originally came from Leutschau, Slovakia and was taken to Matrafured, Hungary in the late 1800's where it continues to be grown prolifically today. It is a very rare variety to find in the United States. Small, compact plants produce fruits that are spicy, mildly hot, and very flavorful. The fruits start out green and turn to a deep, glossy red when mature. Fruits are 2-3 inches long and 1 1/4 inches wide. This variety is perfect for making your own dried paprika. The fruits have a wonderful flavor that just isn't in generic brands of paprika! Plants grow very prolifically over a long period of time and are often covered in peppers in various stages of ripeness.
