Pepper – Fresh from Pfalzmarkt
Cultivation & harvest
Peppers are grown in a sunny and warm location, preferably protected from the wind. In the growth phase, the plants need sufficient amounts of water and plenty of light. Sandy, loose and nutrient-rich soils additionally favor growth.
Peppers are essential to dishes such as Hungarian goulash. Ground pepper in the form of paprika is also an immensely popular spice. The fruit vegetable is very refreshing in salads and is often cooked stuffed with meat or other vegetables.
Peppers should be stored in a cool, dark place. They keep best in this way and do not lose any of their nutrients.
