Aleppo pepper Heirloom seeds (Capsicum Annuum) 10+ seeds also known as the Pul biber in Turkish. This variety is commonly known for its delicious powder and flake in the United states with a raisin like fruity flavor and a nice steady mild heat. This variety was originally grown in northern Syria and Southern Turkey. When this variety is fully ripe it is like eating mild spicy sweet sugar with hints of salt and cumin-like undertones. There is another company(RFC) out there trying to sell an Aleppo type from the USDA called the Aleppo 36 or 37 that is not of pure genotype or directly from Syria like this strain according to the data and information from the USDA themselves.
The Aleppo pepper (Arabic: فلفل حلبي, known as pul biber (flake pepper) in Turkish) is a variety of Capsicum annuum used as a spice, particularly in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine. Also known as the Halaby pepper, it starts as pods which ripen to a burgundy color and is then semi-dried, de-seeded, then crushed or coarsely ground. The pepper is named after Aleppo, a long-inhabited city along the Silk Road in northern Syria, and is grown in Syria and Turkey.
Although a common condiment, its use in the United States outside of Armenian, Syrian and Turkish immigrant communities was rare until the 20th century, with one source (Los Angeles magazine) dating its rise in use among the broader U.S. population to the 1994 publication of The Cooking of the Eastern Mediterranean
