A sweet Hungarian pepper that is wonderful for fresh eating, stuffing or making into paprika powder. Fruits start out white (Feher is "white" in Hungarian) and ripen to orange and red. Plants are compact, very productive and do well in containers. The fruits are generally 4-6" with a wonderful sweet flavor.
If you plant to make sweet paprika powder, we recommend allowing the fruits to fully ripen to orange before drying and grinding.
Origin: We brought the parent seed of this beautiful and tasty Hungarian pepper to our garden from a trip to visit family in Hungary. The seeds came from the garden of a cousin in Szeged.
(Approximately 20 seeds per packet)
Planting Instructions: We recommend starting peppers indoors in a sunny and warm location 4-6 weeks before last frost in spring. Plant outdoors in full sun after danger of frost in spring. Note: pepper seeds need soil temperatures to be at least 70 F to germinate and we use a heating pad under the seedling tray to maintain temperature.
