Aleppo Pepper Seeds

Scoville Heat Units (SHU):

The Aleppo pepper is most known for the delicious spice that can be created by crushing the dried pepper into a powder. The peppers are named after the city of Aleppo, a city in Syria that is known for its delicious culinary dishes. The Aleppo pepper is grown mainly in Northern Syria and Turkey, and is commonly dried and then crushed into a powder for use in Mediterranean foods of the region. 

Aleppo pepper flakes have a lot of complex flavors compared to fresh pods. The flavors are described as fruity and bright, with a touch of raisin tartness, and a cumin-like earthiness – all wrapped into one. The flakes are not quite as hot as traditional red Cayenne pepper flakes, but Aleppo flakes are more oily and flavorful. In fact, many people are making the switch from traditional crushed red pepper to Aleppo pepper flakes for everything from pizza to soups. Aleppo peppers have a medium heat level as they average about 10,000 Scoville Heat Units, which is about the same as a spicy Jalapeno.

    The seeds for the aleppo pepper are tough to find, but I'm glad Tyler seeds has them in stock. I planted mine over 5 weeks ago after my order arrived safe and sound. My little seedlings are looking good and should start producing early this spring! Yay!
