The Aleppo chili pepper belongs to the Capsicum Annuum family of peppers which also include jalapenos, poblanos, serranos, and more. It is usually used as a spice in the Middle East and Mediterranean. The Aleppo pepper is also known as the Halaby chili! It is a very fast grower and can set pods within 2-3 months of being planted. They change color from lime green to a deep burgundy red when fully ripe. This pepper is named after Aleppo, Syria and is widely grown in Syria and Turkey!
The Aleppo chili pepper is about as hot as a Serrano pepper; around 10,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). This pepper is mildly fruity with cumin-like aftertaste, very close to the Ancho chili pepper. These have also been said to have a raisin type of flavor when dried.
These are very commonly used as crushed pepper flakes or sauces. Use it as a substitute for crushed red pepper or paprika!
