Tunisian Baklouti Pepper

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? very good flavor

What are the cons? not much production

Review:

Full disclosure: I stink at growing peppers. I don't know why, they're the one thing that never does as well as I'd like. I normally stick to small seasoning peppers and cubanelles; I tried these as an attempt at a hot pepper that I'd actually use. The flavor is excellent, warm and spicy without being pointlessly hot, adds nice sweet/smoky flavor to gumbos and vegetable dishes and a nice amount of spice that doesn't overpower the actual food. But, I probably got less than a dozen peppers this year on two plants. The garden was an ill-designed rampant mess and maybe with more space they'd have done better, but the Grenada and Tobago seasoning peppers have been very prolific so I suspect this is just not that heavy a producer. It'll be worth a second shot and I do enjoy the flavor and heat level, but it's not a clear winner in my book yet. There are enough seeds in the packet to plant for a couple of seasons.

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.
