Szegedi 179 Paprika-(Capsicum annuum) These hail from the area of Hungary called Szeged. This is pronounces Seged. These have a medium heat so considered to be classified as a hot paprika type. They are used dried or in powder form but in my opinion can be used to make a nice sauce or be roasted whole. The flavor is rich and fruity. The Szegedi 179 chile is about 3 times the thickness of a cayenne and gets almost 4 inches long. The Szegedi 179 chile plants grow up to 4 feet tall.
