The Paprika Kalocsa is very close in appearance to the Szegedi 179 Paprika variety, but it is thicker, nearly 3/4 of an inch and can grow to over 6 inches in length. The heat level is considered medium compared to other chili peppers. They ripen from green to dark red and have a rich paprika flavor with fruity tones. The Paprika Kalocsa can be dried for seasoning, stuffed, roasted or used to make sauces. The Paprika Kalocsa chili plants can grow up to 3 feet tall.

Can paprika peppers be smoked like jalapenos? What does that do to the heat/flavor?
REPLY: Michael, YES, you smoke any peppers to add a bit of smoky flavor to them. It won't really affect the heat level. Flavors can vary depending on the type of wood you use. -- Mike from Chili Pepper Madness.
