Very sweet, productive, and perfect for drying into Paprika…

70 days. Open Pollinated. Heirloom. This Heirloom Alma Paprika Sweet Papper plant gets loaded with smallish (3″-4″ across), squat, very thick walled peppers that start out a creamy white and ripen to yellow, orange, and finally red. At the red stage they are very sweet and good eaten fresh or dried and ground into paprika. These also make lovely stuffed peppers, and are excellent grilled or fried. Easy to grow, relatively early to set a lot of fruits, and great tasting. Making your own paprika is easy: Slice and dry the peppers, grind in a blender, grinder, or food processor, and store in a glass jar with a little rice in the bottom to absorb any moisture. You can also add some dried hot peppers for a spicy version. Home made paprika is much tastier than store bought!

Within 24 hours of receiving your order, we will e-mail you with a shipping date that we choose based on your last frost date. You are welcome to change the date to any other shipping week. Just respond to the e-mail and tell us when you want your plants. Our first shipping date is late March, weather permitting. We will not have plants available before then.

Our plants are sustainably raised in our own potting mix. We use only organic fertilizers and sprays if needed. We have been growing and selling plants since 1997.

Our plants are shipped in individual 3″ deep pots, and are ready to be planted out in your garden.

We package our plants with extreme care so they arrive undamaged at your doorstep. Each plant is tucked into its own padded sleeve. The soil in each pot is covered so it will not spill out. A plant tag identifying the variety is included with each plant.

We ship every Monday and Tuesday, from late March through May, according to your location or your request. We currently ship to every state except Hawaii and Alaska.
