Haskorea Pepper

2 Reviews | Write a Review
'Haskorea' pepper seeds were originally collected in 1999 at the Bab al-Faraj seed market in the Syrian city of Aleppo by a USDA scientist and an official with Syria's Atomic Energy Commission. Those were very different days. The seed market and most of the city have since been destroyed by the vicious war still raging between the Syrian government and its Russian allies against various rebel and extremist groups. The idea of a US government scientist and a Syrian nuclear official strolling through a market together is now ludicrous. Once Syria's commercial center, Aleppo is now a wasteland. Until the war made it a household name, many people outside Syria only knew of the city for its famous 'Aleppo' peppers. Few outside of Syria have even heard of this pepper, let alone tasted it. 'Haskorea' is smaller and less blocky than 'Aleppo' (which is usually turned into a chili powder), but with a richer, spicier flavor. We are only beginning to explore its culinary potential. It has a revered place in our garden already. We look forward to one day returning seeds of this pepper to citizens of Aleppo in a time of peace. Seeds grown ecologically in Elmer, NJ, by the Experimental Farm Network Cooperative.

What are the pros? Beautiful red pepper

What are the cons? Too HOT!!


Started growing indoors and then transplanted. They grew quickly and were first of many types to produce peppers. Plants had a dozen or more peppers per plant. I was warned they were hot but this falls in the ghost pepper hot. I tasted only the pepper without seeds. Extremely hot. Then made the mistake of leaving pepper on a plate where it dried over two days (and got hotter!). Touched the pepper (without seeds) when throwing away. Forgot to wash my hands and stupidly rubbed my eye. I have not had my eyes water that much ever. Wow.... dumb move! Had to find friends who ate ghost peppers just to give them away.

Great Hot Pepper

What are the pros? Very Productive

What are the cons? Slow Growth


Planted in April, it took around 1 1/2 months to produce peppers and another 1 1/2 months or so for them to turn red. Overall it's one of the easiest I've ever grown in 90? weather and clay soil.
