Capsicum annuum. Szeged is typically associated with the best paprika in Hungary. This paprika plant spread and most paprika dishes come from the Szeged region (although there are wonderful paprikas grown in Kalocsa and other parts of the country too) and became popular by exporting to western countries in the 1930’s. Biochemist Professor Albert Szent-Györgyi got received his Nobel prize in 1937 for discovering vitamin C, which, as you may have guessed, happened to be very high content in Szeged paprika. And this fact in itself, seems to have won the Paprika Capital title for Szeged.
