Description: From pepper grower extraordinaire Alan Mackie of Torere and is a traditional family paprika pepper that came to New Zealand with a migrating Yugoslav family who had given it to Alan to keep alive. We love it eaten all ways; raw, as a sweet pepper, dried and ground, or roasted, or fermented. It is absolutely full of flavour.

Planting Instructions: Plant indoors in trays in early Spring. Needs even temperature of 18 degrees C to germinate. Prick out when second leaves appear to 2.5cm diagonal spacing. Transplant after danger of frost, under cloches if necessary at 30cm diagonal spacing.
