Szeged paprika is a type of Hungarian paprika that is made from ground sweet red peppers that are grown and harvested in the Szeged region of Hungary. It is known for its bright red color and sweet, rich flavor, with a mild to medium heat level.
Szeged paprika is often used in traditional Hungarian dishes like goulash, paprikash, and fisherman's soup. It is also used as a seasoning in other European and international cuisines.
The production of Szeged paprika is regulated by the European Union, which has designated it as a protected geographical indication (PGI). This means that only paprika that is grown and processed in the Szeged region of Hungary can be labeled and sold as "Szeged paprika."
