Paprik Organic pepper seeds produce hardy, vigorous plants that are very productive, even in an open field setting. Fruits have small seed cavities, so they dry easily, turning from scarlet to dark brown as they do. Fruits average 12cm (4″) long with a narrow conical shape. The plants are compact, also suitable for machine harvesting. The pods are mostly straight with a very small seed cavity that makes it easier to dry and less damage from rain drops on the fruits.

Grow your own paprika – just dry the pods in decorative ristras at the end of summer. When the pods are completely dry, grind them in a clean spice mill to a very fine consistency. The fresh peppers can also be smoked prior to drying for smoked paprika: remove the stems, pith, and seeds from the fruits and cut them into 1/4″ wide strips. Use some wood chips covered in pierced aluminum foil in an outdoor grill to produce the smoke that will flavour your peppers. Then use a dehydrator or simply allow the strips to dry naturally before grinding into powder.

Start indoors in early March to the first week of April under bright lights. Transplant only when weather has really warmed up in early June or later. Night time lows should be consistently above 12°C (55°F). Soil temperature for germination: 25-29°C (78-85°F). Seeds should sprout in 10 – 21 days. Starting Sow indoors 5mm-1cm (¼-½”) deep. Keep soil as warm as possible. Seedling heating mats speed germination. Try to keep seedlings at 18-24°C (64-75°F) in the day, and 16-18°C (61-64°F) at night. Before they become root-bound, transplant them into 8cm (3″) pots. For greatest possible flower set, try to keep them for 4 weeks at night, about 12°C (55°F). Then transplant them into 15cm (6″) pots, bringing them into a warm room at night, about 21°C (70°F).

 Expect 5-10 large bell peppers per well-grown plant, 20-50 hot peppers per plant. Seed Info In optimal conditions at least 65% of seeds will germinate. Usual seed life: 2 years. Diseases & Pests To prevent rot and wilt, plant in well-drained soils and follow a 4-year rotation. 

Companion Planting Pepper plants make good neighbours for asparagus, basil, carrots, cucumbers, eggplant, endive, oregano, parsley, rosemary, squash, Swiss chard, and tomatoes. Never plant them next to beans, Brassicas, or fennel.
