What is sweet paprika?

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... Less spicy than chilli powder, sweet 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

The paprika harvest

Paprika is the fruit of 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.

Did you know? In paprika, it is the seeds that give it a pungent taste. There are different varieties of paprika (strong or sweet) depending on whether the fruit, the seeds or the tail has been ground.

David Vanille's choice : I chose to offer you this sweet paprika powder for its exceptional taste qualities. To sprinkle on your dishes, it brings a slightly smoky taste and a moderate spiciness to your recipes.

The different varieties of peppers and chili peppers

There are many varieties of peppers and chilli peppers derived from the Capsicum annuum plant, including :

  • The piment d'Anglet: a chilli pepper native to the south-west of France
  • Jalapeno pepper: A Mexican pepper whose spiciness varies from medium hot to hot. It is native to Jalapa in Mexico.
  • The California Wonder sweet pepper
  • Valencian sweet pepper
  • Pepper Mont Jolien

Did you know that?: There are more than 2,300 varieties of chillies and peppers

Differences between sweet and hot paprika

Sweet paprika comes from the flesh of the pepper. The strong paprika is made from the seeds and stems of crushed varieties of peppers to which a little chilli powder from strong to medium-hot has been added. It is called in this case: Paprika Royal.

Difference between Spanish and Hungarian paprika

Hungarian paprika is sweeter than Spanish paprika.

The origins of paprika

Paprika is native to South America. It was mainly found in an area between the southern United States and Mexico. It is an ancient fruit already cultivated 7,000 years B.C. Traces of paprika have been found in archives as a medicine for osteoarthritis and toothache, but also as a bargaining chip by the Mayan and Aztec civilizations.

Its arrival in Europe followed the Spanish colonization. In Spain, paprika became an essential spice in less than a century, to the point of being confused with pepper.

Sweet species of chillies and peppers were cultivated as early as the 17th century in Castile. It is from this period that they began to be powdered so that they could be preserved and consumed all year round.

When it arrived in Hungary, it became theflagship spice of traditional Hungarian cuisine. Cheaper than other spices and easy to grow, it will dethrone pepper. Today, paprika is the Hungarian national spice.

Paprika nowadays

Paprika is a spice that enjoys some protection, particularly in Spain where its production is regulated. Paprika from the regions of La Vera in Extremadura and Murcia has the AOC (Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée) designation.

Did you know that? With 14 million tons produced each year, China is the largest producer of peppers. Spain comes 5th in the ranking with a little more than a million tons cultivated per year
