Details

This lovely drying pepper comes from Matrafured, Hungary. It has been grown there since the 1800s when it was brought from Leutschau (Slovakia). The mildly-hot paprikas have great flavor, are terrific for drying, and make a delicious spicy powder. This is a must-have pepper for chili connoisseurs. Very rare!
