Details

Also known as Sweet Apple. Grow your own paprika seasoning! Alma is one of the best paprika-type peppers for drying and grinding, but can also be eaten fresh from the garden. Plants are loaded with round, thick-walled, sweet peppers that have just a hint of warmth. The 1-2” fruits start out creamy white, and then turn to orange before finally turning red. Harvest red for drying purposes. Your goulash and paprikash will never taste so good.
