What are the pros? Flavor and size
What are the cons? none
I have tried several different Paprika type peppers over the years but this is the first year I have grown the Leutschauer pepper. The plant itself is upright and I have them staggered in rows about a foot apart and the plants themselves about 14" apart. The only plant that has fallen over is on the end of the middle row. I have had no sunscald and the peppers ripen to red very uniformly. I have about 40 plants and have picked ripe peppers 3 times now, harvesting about 100 peppers per picking. One thing I really like about this pepper is they are consistently uniform in size. They have the best flavor of any Paprika pepper I have grown. I have tasted them both fresh and dried and the dried flavor is just as good (spicy) as the fresh. My wife loves them too as she is the one who grinds them up and uses them in her cooking. Am looking forward to her special paprika formulas where she mixes them with really hot peppers. I will grow this again for sure. Bigger plot next year.

What are the pros? Great flavor, easy to grow
What are the cons? None
I have very limited space in my yard for growing anything so I grew these in containers.
I started seeds in late winter. I planted three plants in a large pot filled with Mel's mix and put it in an area in which it got about four or five hours of sun a day.
Despite what I consider less-than-ideal growing conditions these plants skyrocketed. As of now, mid August, they are pumping out peppers. I'm harvesting about six to ten peppers a week.
I've dried my peppers and ground them to a powder. Last week I made chicken paprikash using my own paprika. What a decadent experience. It was much better than any I've ever eaten made with paprika I bought in a store.

What are the pros? Resist disease, waterlog
I planted these in a new garden, virgin soil, and unfortunately it was a low spot. We have had a month of flooding but even with the harsh growing conditions they are still alive, disease free, and producing peppers. Its drying up and they should take off with improved conditions.
I'm growing these in bulk next season, would buy again.
What are the pros? Great Germination Rate
What are the cons? None yet
Nearly 100% germination rate in Aerogarden seed starter (19 out of 20). All sprouts were nearly 2" tall by the end of the second week! I will be transplanting them to peat pots for a few weeks until they are ready for the garden!

What are the pros? Great Flavor and Heat
I planted these from seed last year here in Scottsdale in Early march and they grew slowly until May went the hotter weather took over. These large 30" tall plants produced numerous fruit which ripened to a rich deep red. As I mianly wanted these to make spice. I dried the pods and ground them to make traditional paprika. I found the ground Leutschauer's to be deep rich and complex with a moderate heat that lends a great authentic flavor to P?rk?lt or goulash.
