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!
