ALMA PAPRIKA PEPPER (70 days)

2

Germ 10-14 days
This is the type of paprika that is squat with many lobes, similar in size and shape to a medium sized tomato. This is the perfect pepper to dry to produce the popular spice but is also eaten fresh, and yields are very abundant so you can use it both ways. Skin color changes from cream to a bright pumpkin orange and eventually red. 20 seeds

PLANTING:

Indoors- Start 8-10 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 70-80 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant 18” apart when danger of frost has passed and when soil is 65 degrees.

Harvest- Using a sharp instrument, pick first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some on to mature, to color and sweeten up.

Tips- Plant in fertile, well composted soil, mulch and provide adequate water. It helps to use row cover early in the season giving the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Side dress when flowers begin to form.

Spicy!

These are just getting ripe for me now. I have really abundant fruit and some of them are spicy! Some have been completely mild, and other are hot. I like the spice, but be warned. I haven't had luck before with peppers, and these are really juicy and thick walled. I'm very happy.

fantastic

These are one of the few peppers that mature up here in Northern Minnesota. They set fruit even in the cooler summers. The flavor is sweet, and they are fantastic stuffed.
