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? Superb flavor

What are the cons? N/A

Review:

I started my seeds indoors in March (will start earlier next year) and planted out in May - zone 5. The soil was well composted, plus some organic fertilizer, but the plants were not prolific. I'm going to take note of what others are using for fertility. The peppers that matured, however, were medium sized and easy to dry. I teach a cooking science class and every student was stunned by the comparison with purchased hungarian paprika. Next year, I'll go with more plants and more food for them!

What are the pros? Vigor, flavor

What are the cons? Slow maturity

Review:

Sowed 8 seeds in expert gardener potting soil indoors 4/21. 6 seedlings eventually emerged. On June 2nd 1 seedling was transplanted to 6” pot with bone meal and 5/5/5 organic slow release fertilizer and 2nd seedling transferred to 1 gallon pot with similar bone meal and fertilizer. 3 other seedlings transferred to native amended clay soil. First pod from gallon pot was mature on 10/2. 2 pods from 6” pot are full size and nearly mature on 10/8. Both potted plants received weekly 24/8/16 soluble fertilizer. One plant appears to branch more naturally, with lime green leaves and fruit and less tapered pod. It appears genetics are variable. The mature pepper is actually sweet if you avoid the placenta. The placenta is significantly hot. The plants did not grow in the native clay. Overall, these peppers performed surprisingly well in the heat and humidity and confined potting. Outstanding flavor with heat. I didn't need a cage or staking but also confined them to small pots.

What are the pros? Taste, production, growth

What are the cons? Requires heavy staking

Review:

We are really impressed with these peppers. Despite having already processed several cups of wonderful medium/hot paprika powder the plants look like they are just getting going. Next year we will stake them with a heavy duty cage - they get so full of fruit they really need it - we'll also set them out a couple weeks earlier since they are just hitting peak production a little too late in the season.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, Good yields.

What are the cons? Birds like them.

Review:

First time growing these. Very tolerant of this summers heat in Zone 10. Also tolerant of a certain amount of abuse. Good yields with original soil. Plants needed feeding after first harvest. Growing in 3-4 gallon pots (one fabric, one self-watering). Use a cage, they get top heavy with fruit.
