The Boldog from Hungary doesn’t bite but does dry nicely with a hint of spiciness. A prolific bearer of 4–6" long wrinkled tapered pendent fruits. Pick red, dry, and grind into sweet paprika or string into decorative ristras, or enjoy fresh, although skins are a little tough. Boldog sets enough fruit to accommodate all three uses. Emily Skrobis reports that 8 plants easily produced a quart of paprika: “I never use store-bought paprika when I have immensely flavorful Boldog to spice up my cooking. It gets lots of compliments!” The town of Boldog is in a well-known spice-pepper district northeast of Budapest.
