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.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
