First, it was Christopher Columbus who is said to have brought with him a type of pepper, which was chillier than the Caucasian type.Paprika was a domesticated plant among the Native American people, thus the explorers named it ’Indian pepper’.
Second, the use of paprika as a spice was spread by the Turks in the 18th century.
They brought it to the Balkan Peninsula first, and later to Hungary.
The first Hungarian records about its cultivation originate from the Kalocsa and Szeged region.
The dry climate of the riverbanks of the Great Plains, the longer hours of sunshine, and the special soil resulted in the development of the characteristic Hungarian paprika, which surpasses the original pepper types with its fiery redness, its taste and special aroma.
The first radiocarbon dates available on the evolution of the freshwater carbonates of the Danube-Tisza Interfluve are presented in this work along with their possible uses to precisely date paleoecological and paleoenvironmental changes.
This work also gives the basis of a comparative analysis of the Holocene radiocarbon-dated profile of Csólyospálos with other Hungarian radiocarbon-dated profiles of the same age (Bátorliget, the Sárrét, etc.) and the implementation of a detailed chronological and regional paleoenvironmental study.
Furthermore, our findings clearly demonstrate the importance of radiocarbon analysis in the study of terminal Pleistocene and Holocene Hungarian sedimentary sequences for accurately dating and reconstructing the chronological order of paleoenvironmental changes as well as the evolution of the natural endowments plus the regional comparison of the various profiles. Although carefully collected, accuracy cannot be guaranteed.
