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? Flavor

What are the cons? Difficult to germinate seeds

Review:

These grow very well if you can get them to germinate. In 2017 I saved my own seeds from the peppers i grew from the seeds i bought here. They were easy to save and germinated quickly.and grew very quickly in 2018. But alas in Virginia we had too much rain and most everyone lost their gardens. This year i could not get my seeds to germinate which germinated last year. i could see nothing wrong with them. These peppers are hot raw but when cooked with chili or similar dishes they have a unique sweet flavor with a touch of hot but not too hot. They are awesome. I like to grow a lot and freeze them for using in dishes during the winter.

What are the pros? Everything!

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

They make a great seasoning obviously, but I think they make the best peppers to use in quiches and casseroles. Great flavor with a hint of heat. I slice them in the food processor, but them in plastic food containers and pop them raw in to the freezer. Amazing any time of the year!

This has been the best addition to my cooking as dried powder. I will now grow this plant every year. Plants overwinter in Phoenix and are very productive the next year. Just beautiful.

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.
