The Aleppo has a robust, long lasting heat, as well as a unique umami flavor. It has been favored by chefs for centuries, and is named after the city that used to be the most populous in Syria.
-- In honor of the people who have cultivated this chile for generations, I will be donating 5% of sales from this variety to the Seattle chapter of the International Rescue Committee.
I would love for more people to grow this pepper themselves, and usually offer seed packets (10 seeds each) for $1.99. These are currently sold out, but will be available again later this year.
The Aleppo began as a Limited Edition, but has since joined our regular rotation of peppers.Sign up for our newsletter to find out about upcoming Limited Editions!
We currently have THREE very delicious Limited Edition hot sauces. While I am excited to offer so many new varieties, please note that supplies are more limited than usual, due to a harder agricultural season. As such, the Limited Editions here are not currently available for the six pack or full case deals.
Chihuacle Negro -- Originally from Oaxaca, Mexico, this dark purple chile is traditionally dried and used in mole sauce. The heat here is mild to medium, but the flavor is rich, full of umami and unsweetened fresh pepper, and is sure to add depth to cooking.
Cherry Bomb -- Oregon's own Adaptive Seeds is attempting to de-hybridize this gem of a pepper. While the result could have yielded more fruit, we were quite happy with the sauce we were able to glean. The flavor is Very fruity, but not at all sweet, with a medium hot but lasting burn.
Aji -- Our all Aji sauce is our spiciest limited edition. Featuring a NW adapted capsicum baccatum, this sauce has a wonderfully exotic flavor. Heat lovers will enjoy notes of melon and green papaya.
