Feher Ozon

Feher Ozon Paprika OG

(90 days) Open-pollinated Hungarian heirloom. My first introduction to this extraordinary pepper was in a jar…dried and ground to a wonderfully sweet paprika. I was intrigued. The field reports didn’t even consider this aspect, instead extolling Feher Ozon for incredible productivity: up to two dozen 3x4½" pointed light yellow fruits per plant. One trialer fed her entire neighborhood with these sweet juicy and flavorful peppers. If you let any turn red, they can be dried for a delicious paprika. The beauty of this pepper as it turns is noteworthy. Beginning with the faintest red overtones blending into its yellow background, the red blush grows more pronounced as it matures.

Additional Information

Peppers

Capsicum annuum

For all peppers, days to full-color maturity are from transplanting date.

~160 seeds/g. Capsicum comes from the Greek kapto which means ‘bite.’

Culture: Very tender, will not tolerate frost, dislike wind, will not set fruit in cold or extremely hot temperatures or in drought conditions. Start indoors in March or April. Set out in June. Black plastic highly recommended. Row cover improves fruit set in windy spots. Pick first green peppers when they reach full size to increase total yield significantly. Green peppers, though edible, are not ripe. Peppers ripen to red, yellow, orange, etc.

Minimum germination soil temperature 60°, optimal range 68-95°.

Diseases:

  • BLS: Bacterial Leaf Spot
  • CMV: Cucumber Mosaic Virus
  • TMV: Tobacco Mosaic Virus

Seed-saving tips: Use only the first fruits for seed; allow only 3–4 fruits per plant to grow and remove all others. Fewer fruits = larger seeds = greater seed viability. Later fruits often have germination rates of only 60%.
