How to grow paprika from seed right from your own kitchen

How to grow paprika from seed right from your kitchen

I love paprika’s because of so many reasons. First of, they are very yummy, healthy and colorful. O yeah, they are great for garnishing as well. In addition, paprika’s have lots of skin, hair, health and other benefits that your body can benefit from. Most of all, I love them because they are very easy to grow from seed.

Believe me, you don’t have to be an experience gardener to be able to grow paprika from seed. And of course you can buy some “ready-to-grow” paprika’s seeds or you can just buy some fresh paprika’s, eat the paprika’s and use the seeds to grow.

“Never waste thing that you can grow” is my newest life’s motto:-)

Gladly to inform you that the latter method has turned out to be my favorite one because it’s easier, convenient and cheaper. So, let’s go ahead and get started with the tutorial on how to grow paprika from seed right from your own kitchen:

What you need to do:

  1. Cut the large (red) paprika in half.
  2. Separate the seeds from the paprika flesh carefully (use the paprika flesh as you wish).
  3. Let the seeds dry out for about 5 – 7 days.
  4. After 5 – 7 days, put the potting soil into the (medium) pot.
  5. Moisten the potting soil lightly but thoroughly with some water.
  6. Sow the seeds throughout the potting soil.
  7. Get some potting soil, loosen them and use them to “cover” the seeds up.
  8. Water them regularly but be careful not to overwater.

Please note that you don’t have to have a proper garden but you do have to put the pot somewhere in the house where there is enough sunlight.

A (small) balcony like mine would do just fine. A direct sunlight is the key when it comes to growing paprika (or any other plant for that matter) from seed.

Yes, you are finished. So, just sit back, relax and wait until they grow. Growing they will and starting the 3rd day, you should see some tiny leaves that start to emerge from the surface of the potting soil.

Naturally, you can use this easy method to grow other vegetables, herbs, flowers or other plants. Good luck and let me know what you’re growing and how they’re growing in the comment section below.
