Leutschauer Pepper Seeds

This very rare Paprika pepper has been growing in Matrafured, Hungary since the 1800s, and you could grow this too! Why not make your own Gourmet Paprika Powder and get creative with it instead of the dull grocery store brands? This is a lovely drying pepper and the Leutschauer pepper plant grows fast with an abundance of sweet-smelling peppers. When you take a bite, you’ll notice crispy texture with sweet flavors, matching their sweet aromas. The Leutschauer plant will grow over 2 feet tall.

The Leutschauer Paprika pepper is popular in Hungarian markets but is hard to find in the USA. This is a must-have Pepper for Chile connoisseurs, and they are great for drying, smoking, and into a spicy pepper powder.

Doesn't smell like Paprika

After growing these, I was surprised they didn't smell like paprika powder. Kind of a sweet pepper really. I never dried them if that is needed to get the paprika smell. So i used them as stuffed peppers when I ran out of Jalepenos. Later I tried my hand at making hot sauce. It turned out really good. I added these and anneheim peppers to help cut down on the heat of the ghost and thai peppers i used in the sauce. Added some onion powder, garlic powder and smoked paprika powder and it was the best hot sauce i ever had.

I've had mixed luck with these peppers, only about half germinated then only a few survived after starting, I've ended up with 4 plants in the garden out of a pack of seeds, these are just starting to produce ripe peppers now, but they have a lot of peppers on them, and I should have a good crop to try.
