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!

What are the pros? Great Flavor and Heat

What are the cons? None

Review:

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.

What are the pros? Flavorful when dried, Yield

What are the cons? maybe heat

Review:

This is a great paprika for drying. I has a natural smokiness to it. Watch out for its heat though, it packs a punch for a paprika. These did very well in Wisconsin, Zone 5b, with a average summer. These respond well to gypsum amendment added the previous fall. These are quite susceptible to adulterating cross pollination. This maybe the cause for some of them to melt my face off. I had them growing a few feet away from some Trinidad Scorpions. Still had a great paprika flavor though

What are the pros? Uniform Fruit, good yield

What are the cons? plants need staking

Review:

I started seeds indoors under T5 lighting with under heat, germination rates were really good...though I should have thinned these further than I did. Instead I left 2 or 3 plants per plug which I think was a mistake because once these plants started to take off they wanted to be fairly columnar in growth and then started to set fruit and became top heavy. Plants were set out in april which was a little late but when they took off they started producing really well with nice uniformly sized and shaped fruits that I harvested once red and dehydrated. To turn them into powder I used a grain mill with the burr tightened down like I was making flour and once the peppers were lightly crushed in a bag they ran through the mill like butter and made almost a cup of powder out of the gallon zip lock baggie of peppers that I had. I would have had more had we not had to move out of our house in the middle of the summer and turn our garden under. Will definitely grow these again.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, very prolific

What are the cons? None

Review:

This little pepper was a great surprise this year. All seeds planted germinated and each plant produced an over abundant amount of beautiful red peppers. We smoked them for a couple of hours, then put them into a warm oven to finish the drying process. Rough ground them in the food processor, then finished them in the spice grinder to make a BEAUTIFUL, rich, burgundy-red smoked paprika to use all winter in sooooooo many dishes. This stuff is amazing - rich flavor, mild-to-middlin' warmth...I just can't say enough good about the Leutschauer paprika pepper and it will remain a staple in our garden always. :)

What are the pros? Very productive

Review:

Very productive and easy to grow pepper that ripens at the end of August up here in Ontario, Canada. I have so many of these peppers that I know what to do with. The heat of these peppers surprised me, when I deseeded these peppers by hand my fingers where burning and numb for a day. Fantastic pepper that I use to make the best enchilada sauce that has lots of flavour but that is not hot. The recipe is one ripe fresh deseeded Leutschauer pepper, one pound of fresh tomatoes plus 1/2 teaspoon of salt. I cook the ingredients until soft then blend and strain the sauce with a food mill. Then I saut? some garlic in olive oil add the sauce, ground cumin, oregano and black pepper and over the enchilada it goes. Best sauce ever. I make a huge batch and pressure can the sauce for use in the winter when peppers and tomatoes cost a fortune. I only can the tomato pepper sauce and then add the other ingredients and spices when I use the sauce. Canning the tomato pepper sauce this way saves me the p
