Hungarian chile peppers have been cultivated in Hungary since the 16th century when it is believed the Turks brought these pungent little capsicums to the country. Since that time, Hungary has been known for producing some savory little peppers, ranging from paprika to cherry peppers.
A symbol of Hungarian cuisine, paprika is a versatile little pepper that ranges in pungency from mild to hot. Depending on the pepper, paprika may be a muted red, bright red or even brown; typically, the brightest colored paprika yields the highest heat. Paprika is commonly used as a powder, but may also be used as a whole pod in salads and soups.

Hungarian Cherry Peppers
Hungarian cherry peppers are beautiful little chiles that spice up a dish visually and gastronomically. They get their name because they’re round and bright red—like a cherry!
