This report is a two-year continuation of the RIRDC project US-98A: Condiment Paprika: Breeding, Processing and Commercialisation (Stage 1). Condiment paprika, which is the dried and ground flesh of seed of speciality types of Capsicum species, is a globally traded commodity. During the project, breeding lines were advanced, especially by single seed descent; selections were made; new germplasm with specific traits were introduced into the breeding program; work started on the use of male sterility for hybrid seed production; and one line was approved for Plant Breeders Rights (PBR).
