Premium Sweet Paprika in 50gm 19 Hole Shaker Pack

Like all capsicums, the paprika varieties are native to South America. Originally a tropical plant, it can now grow in cooler climates. In Europe Hungary and Spain are the two main centres for growing paprika peppers, though these varieties have evolved into much milder forms than their tropical ancestors.

Equagold’s Sweet Paprika and Smoked Sweet Paprika are imported from Spain. The Spanish grades of pimentón are dolce (sweet), agridulce (semi sweet) and picante (hot). Many spiced sausages incorporate it, including the Spanish chorizos.
