Ob süss, mild oder sackscharf, die Capsicum-Familie bietet eine breite Vielfalt an Farben und Geschmack. Roh enthalten Paprika und Peperoni viele Vitamine, gekocht bringen sie Farbe auf den Teller. Milde Sorten können auch mit Reis und Hackfleisch gefüllt werden. Der Anbau von Paprika ist eher heikel: wenn möglich sollten diese Arten im Tomatenhaus oder an einem geschützten Ort angebaut werden, z.B. entlang einer sonnenorientierten Wand.

As they ripen the colour changes from yellow to orange to dark red. Their slight sharpness makes food interesting but not overpowering. But be careful, sometimes a spicy one can grow in the mix. For any recipes from the Balkan region, this variety is a must!
