Tunisian Baklouti Pepper

         
 
6 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
The traditional pepper of Tunisia, a small country on the famed Barbary Coast that was once considered the "bread basket" of the Roman Empire. Large red, tapering pods have a wonderful hot flavor, but tend to get more mild with cooking. Delicious flavor that is perfect with couscous and other wonderful north African dishes that are making me hungry as I type!

What are the pros? Delicious smoky pepper oder

What are the cons? wasn't particularly prolific

Review:

First year planting this pepper, it did well (no pest or disease problems) but only had a few fruit per plant. But oh my, the fruit. This is not a super hot pepper. I enjoyed the first one raw off the bush. It had a nice crisp taste, with good sweetness and distinctive pepper flavor. It starts mildly spicy, with a growing burn as you finish. What really got my attention was the terrific smoked pepper smell the fruit gives off, even before biting into it. I'll be growing it again, with a bit more TLC to see if I can increase the yield.

What are the pros? Great flavor, high heat.

What are the cons? Hard to grow; finicky plant

Review:

A must-have pepper for Harrissa paste used in Tunisian cooking. Kind of unique flavor of the pepper makes it nice to have to us looking for authentic flavored recipes. A slow grower that likes full sun and a late bloomer. Be patient, feed heavily and you will be rewarded. A thirsty plant as well, so keep soil moist.

What are the pros? Great flavor

What are the cons? Not as prolific as I hoped

Review:

The pepper is just like home (Tunisia). Our family loves it and it goes into all of our cooking - couscous, stews, fried, etc. It wasn't as prolific as I hoped, but we're definitely growing it next year. It's just the perfect level of heat, very subtle, to flavor the pot.

Review:

Great plant that is tall and healthy. It is medium hot and flavorful. Medium prolific. It is my wife's favorite chilli and we grow it every year. She makes this wonderful Tunisian sauce from these peppers. I intend to grow this every year and highly recommend.

Review:

I was surprised when this pepper did better than 6 other varieties that I grew. I thought it would do the worst because of the dry Denver climate, and high altitude. The peppers were tasty, about as hot as a medium-hot Jalapeno (when red and ripe). I am going to grow again, and with more plants so I can make more sauce / salsa with it. Mmmmm very tasty.
