CHILLI PAPRIKA ADD TO YOUR COOKING OR DRY FOR SPICE! PEPERONE DESHI MIRCH TIAN JIAO FRESH SEEDS $2.20

CHILLI PAPRIKA IS A LARGE CHILLI THAT RESEMBLES AN ELONGATED CAPSICUM IN SOME WAYS, BUT DON’T BITE IT OFF AND CHEW WITHOUT KNOWING WHAT YOU ARE GETTING INTO! LESS HOT THAN MANY OF THE VARIETIES, IT STILL HAS A KICK TO IT!

Paprika is made from the dried fruit pods of less pungent varieties of the Capsicum annum species. It is mildly flavoured and prized for its brilliant red colours.  Paprika goes by many names in different languages such as tian jiao (Mandarin Chinese), deshi mirch (Hindi), piment annuel/piment doux (French), fulful halou (Arabic), paprika (German, Spanish, English), and peperone (Italian).
