Hello!

I would like to plant some peppers next season to try my hand at making homemade paprika. Does anyone have any recommendations for which variety of peppers work well? I have looked online a little, but was hoping for some suggestions from this great group Smile

Thanks!

Paprika Peppers are easy to grow, and produce a lot of peppers per plant. Easy to harvest, dry, and grind into powder.

Hi OhioGardener!

Have you grown any of these varieties? If so, what did you like about them? I looked into the leutschauer pepper but was concerned that it might be too hot, same for the alma pepper although it looks like you might be able to find those either hot or mild. Numex R Naky looks to be the sweetest of varieties. I might try those.

Thanks

The "heat" of a pepper is a relative thing. With Paprika, for example, if one finds the spice to "hot" the solution is to use just a little less of the spice for flavoring. I personally do not find the Leutschauer Paprika Pepper to be hot, says the guy who eats raw Jalapeno peppers while working in the garden.  I do, though, find homemade ground Paprika pepper more favorable and spicier than the store bought ones, so we use a little less of it to get the same results.  Two Leutschauer Paprika Pepper plants produce more peppers than we can use, and next year there may only be one of them.

I have grown Leutschauer Paprika Peppers from Baker Creek. Last year they did not germinate, as did most of my other pepper. It wasn't disastrous because I still had enough powder from the prior year. I found that once dried and ground it was hotter than store bought. My DIL agrees. Maybe because I can't get that super-fine grind. ??

Sanderson, have you tried any other varieties for paprika powder? Also, when using the paprika powder from the Leutschauer Paprika peppers were you able to just use less like OhioGardener suggests doing? I just don't want to grow, dry and grind peppers that I wouldn't be able to utilize because they are too hot! LOL

Did you increase the heat mat setting for the peppers?  I have found they germinate best at 80ºF to85ºF.  Below 80 they don't seem to have a good germination rate.  Most vegetable seeds seem to do fine at around 70ºF, but that doesn't seem to work for peppers for me.

JAM, no I haven't tried any other variety. I just go easy on it.

Baker Creek is my go-to seed company for 90-95% of my seeds. I do buy common seeds like Blue Lake beans or yellow squash from HD. I started gardening in 2013 after I bought survival heirloom seed bundles from MyPatriotSupply. Razz (I notice they are pretty much sold out after having end of year sale at 97 cents a packet.)

Thanks so much everyone! Gotta love the free shipping at Baker Creek for when you need just one packet of peppers! Looks like I may be growing Leutschauer Paprika Peppers!

Feb 2022 was basically my first year of pepper failure.  Only 3 of 13 varieties germinated, even those in the Ziplock bags on the heat mat.  February 2023, I will be starting peppers and a few herbs 3 weeks earlier than the other veggies.  They will have the heat mat to themselves. Very Happy

I ordered some seeds last night and didn't even notice the free shipping. Very Happy
