Paprika is a vegetable but also the name of a spice derived from the sweet pepper or capsicum (Capsicum annuum). These two vegetables come from the Solonaceae family, as do tomatoes, aubergines, etc. Less hot than chilli powder, hot paprika has more flavour than classic paprika. Its aromas are close to those of dried tomatoes.
The flowers of the peppers are white with 6 or 8 petals. Their pollen is irritating
Paprika is the fruit of the Capsicum annuum. It is harvested ripe before being dried. Once dry, it is crushed until a fine powder is obtained: the paprika powder.
In Europe, paprika is increasingly being grown in greenhouses.
