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 make an annual donation equal to 5% of sales from this variety, to the Seattle chapter of the International Rescue Committee.
Please note that this year's wildfire smoke was especially harmful to our crop of Aleppo peppers, and as such, our supply is very limited. Hoping (and planning for) a greater abundance next season.
Seeds for the Aleppo pepper are currently sold out. I will be growing many more of this variety next season, and will endeavor to set aside a larger amount of seed for those wishing to grow this pepper themselves.
