Papri Plus is perfect for making paprika at home. Simply cut the peppers in half, remove the seeds, and dry the peppers. Once they are dry, break them into small pieces to fit in a spice grinder. Fruit average 6 inches in length and 1 ½ inches in width. Maturing from green to red, paprika is better made from red peppers which are more flavorful. These peppers taste great fresh too. Almost no heat. 70 days to green fruit and 80 to 85 days to red.
