Organic Paprika

Paprika (American English more commonly /pəˈpriːkə/ (About this soundlisten),[1] British English more commonly /ˈpæprɪkə/ (About this soundlisten)[2]) is a spice made from dried and ground red peppers.[3] It is traditionally made from Capsicum annuum varietals in the Longum group, which also includes chili peppers, but the peppers used for paprika tend to be milder and have thinner flesh.[4][5] In some languages, but not English, the word paprika also refers to the plant and the fruit from which the spice is made, as well as to peppers in the Grossum group (e.g. bell peppers).[6][7]: 5, 73
