The Leutschauer Pepper gets its name from its origin: Leutschau, Slovakia. This very rare Paprika pepper was brought over to Matrafured, Hungary in the 1800s, and has been growing there ever since.

The compact Leutschauer pepper plant will grow over 2 feet tall in your garden or any container plant and boast great yields of these bright red peppers. These pods stretch to anywhere between 2-4" long and have shiny, smooth skin and conical shape that tapers off to a point.

When you take a bite, you’ll notice a crispy texture with sweet flavors, matching their sweet aromas. 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.

Liked the seeds, however they are a little hotter than I thought, was making paprika powder spice


These peppers are nice and large and don’t take that long to mature I’ve had great success with these and everything else I’ve bought from pepper joes.

Not Mild at All

I was looking for a pepper for MILD paprika and alas, this is not it. The plants are robust and fruit prolifically, so I have to figure out what to do with all these peppers. Hot sauce, I guess, although they don't have the kind of heat I prefer. They are at least the stated 2500 SHU, probably more. Anybody have a nomination for a great mild paprika pepper? I've tried a bunch and they either didn't produce or were too hot.
