Originally from Leutschau, Slovakia, it was taken to Matrafured, Hungary in the late 1800's where it continues to be grown prolifically today. It is a very uncommon variety to find in the United States.
Compact plants produce fruits that are spicy, mildly hot, and very flavorful. The fruits start out green and turn to a deep, glossy red when mature. Fruits are 2-3 inches long and 1 1/4 inches wide. This variety is perfect for making your own dried paprika, the fruits having a wonderful, deep flavor. Plants grow very prolifically over a long period of time and are often covered in peppers in various stages of ripeness.
