Aleppo
The most famous and used pepper in the entire middle east. This Syrian pepper named after the city (Aleppo) where it has been cultivated for centuries. Even though it is very famous and widely used over there, it is very rare and barely known to us in North America. The pepper has very unique flavor profile that cannot be found in any other pepper. The full ripe, bright red pods have a great complex flavor of sweet cherry like, mixed with high levels of acidic-sour taste, followed by medium heat levels.
