Paprika is not simply a popular seasoning in Hungary, but its at the very core of Hungarian cuisine It is used for its flavour and for its bright colour in two varieties: sweet and hot/spicy. Most households will have both for Hungarian dishes like goulash. Growing paprika in the Kalocsa region (mid-southern part of Hungary) goes back to the 18th century, but industrial production only started in the 1920’s. Kalocsa was in strong competition with Szeged, especially in the sweet paprika market.
In 2012 the European Commission approved the Protected Designation of Origin title for Kalocsa paprika. This means that all production and technological procedures ranging from seed production to grinding which are performed in the Kalocsa region are carried out under controlled conditions.
