Alma Paprika Pepper (70 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.

PLANTING

Caspsicum annuum

Germination: 10-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 75-85ºF. Cooler soil temperatures slows germination time.

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼” deep

Starting Indoors:  8-10 weeks before last frost. Sow in flats/cells/pots. Provide 75-85ºF soil temperatures. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer (diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement). Transplant seedlings 18-24” apart after last frost.

Sowing Outdoors: Not recommended, especially in northern areas

How much does a packet plant: 20-25 foot single row  

Harvest: Use a sharp instrument to cut the peppers from the plant. Pick the first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some peppers on the plant to mature so they can change color and sweeten up.

Tips: Pinch-off early flowers or tiny fruit on any seedlings before placing them in the ground. Plant in fertile soil, amend with composted if needed. 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.
