(Halaby Pepper, Pul Biber) A blunt-bottomed red pepper less than 2 feet tall, no staking necessary, good leaf cover against sunburn. Native to Syria and Turkey, named after the ancient city of Aleppo, located on the famed silk road of antiquity. This pepper is used extensively in local cuisine, mainly in the dried, crushed form. This is a rare and desirable type that may be gainfully grown in the temperate garden, using standard propagation technique for peppers. I have been processing these by waiting until fully ripe and crimson red, then cutting in strips and sun-drying between screens. The dried strips may then be ground up and sprinkled on food.
20 seeds per packet, certified organically grown
