Called pul biber ("flaked pepper") in Turkish, this variety is famed world-wide for its gentle piquancy and the complexity of flavor it adds when sprinkled over Middle Eastern dishes!
The peppers are medium-sized, elongated bells, ripening to deep burgundy-red at full maturity. The thin-walled fruits dry readily, and are then flaked or ground for use as a condiment. The sweet-hot flakes contribute a cumin-like and salty undertone. Originated in the region where southern Turkey meets Syria, and named for the ancient city of Aleppo, astride the old Silk Road.
