Limited Edition: Targu Mures
The first of our 2019 Limited Editions features a Transylvanian pepper, the Tårgu Mures. Originally grown in Romania, I found this variety through an Oregon company called Adaptive Seeds, that promotes (and breeds) cultivars that are adapted for the Northwest climate.
The Targu has a similar heat level as our own Hot Winter Pepper, but is less sweet and more fruity, with rich, dark cherry flavors. The heat is more immediate and less long lasting than our own med-hot sauce
