A lovely drying pepper that comes from Matrafured, Hungary. It has been grown there since the 1800s when it was brought from Leutschau (Slovakia). The medium-hot paprikas have great flavor, are terrific for drying, and make a delicious spicy powder. Very rare!

Review:

Very quick growing, tall plants , fast ripening, disease and drought resistant, we had a very dry summer and while some of my other pepper varieties sometimes got wilt after a lot hot dry day these peppers never had any problems. They produced so many peppers which I am hanging to dry, and some I freezed.

What are the pros? Ripens quickly on plant

What are the cons? Too hot for my taste

Review:

These 30" plants produced better than any other pepper in my garden. They turned a beautiful red on the plant in record time. I air dried them, since I live in a very dry climate. My review is mainly about the ground paprika that I made from them, and I'm giving them a 4-star rating only because the level of heat was not what I expected. Other reviews have described the paprika as smoky, spicy, moderate heat, etc. The only way I can describe the ground paprika I made is HOT--as in Tabasco pepper hot. Now I'm hoping to find a milder paprika pepper at the farmer's market that I can dry and mix with the Leutschauer.

Review:

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.

Review:

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.

Review:

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.
