Cultural practices and cultivars for once-over harvested sweet paprika

, : Cultural practices and cultivars for once-over harvested sweet paprika. Acta Horticulturae (73): 255-262

Once-over harvesting of sweet peppers, after the fruits had dried on the plants, proved satisfactory for paprika spice production and pigment extraction in a trial with the cvs Mild California and Shany. Delaying harvest after the cessation of irrigation increased the dry matter content and colour intensity without any loss in dry matter yield. Shany was more suitable than Mild California for mechanical harvesting; it gave slightly higher yields but a lower fruit pigment quality.
