Paprika to the left and right

We arrived at Central market hall eventually. And we were greeted with ham, salami, fresh fruits, fresh vegetables and quite a bit of paprika. There are different types of paprika, sweet, hot, very hot and mild. Sadly the writing is in HUngarian so on reaching home .....whilst attempting to distribute my Paprika, I couldn't figure out the types.

Paprika is the symbolic spice of Hungary. It is produced by grinding dried deep red paprika pods of the pepper plant..

Interesting fact: The plant was brought to the country by the Turks in the 16th-17th century.
