Pre-Order: Aleppo (hot)
NOW ACCEPTING PRE-ORDERS. We will begin bottling our Aleppo sauce at the end of this month . Pre-orders will ship beginning the first week in November, with all pre-orders in the mail no later than Nov 13. Please note that any order that includes a pre-order item will ship in full, once the pre-ordered item is ready. Currently, this particular variety is yielding less fruit than expected, and quantities this year may be limited. Sign up for our newsletter to receive production updates.
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 so offer seed packets (10 seeds each) for $2.99. Please Note: the newly harvested seeds likely contain some genetic drift. In my harvesting this year, I noticed several off-types in my Aleppo field. I am able to manage these off types during harvest, but want to be clear that some of them may effect the seed going forward. I will be planting a much larger field of Aleppo next year, so that I can better return to the breed standard. I am thus offering a limited amount of 2020 seeds, and a promise to refine my offering in 2021.
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!
