This report is a three-year continuation of a previous RIRDC project, US-116A: Condiment paprika breeding and hybrid seed production). Condiment paprika, which is the dried and ground flesh of speciality types of Capsicum species, is a globally traded commodity. During the project, breeding lines were developed using single seed descent (SSD), selections made and new germplasm with specific traits introduced into the breeding program. A promising future for capsicum hybrid seed
production in Australia is apparent.
