Maras, Aleppo and Urfa Biber Seeds?

swaiteFebruary 13, 2013

Hi Guys,

First post here, hoping someone can help me! I'm looking for true seeds (or, fresh pods) for Aleppo (also known as Halaby), Maras (also known as marash, or maras biber, or similar) and urfa biber (also known as isot) peppers. I've been having a devil of a time locating them, my usual sources are a wash and I can't find anything on Google except for dried stuff, which I've read is prepared in such a way that it kills the seeds.

Seeds from pods that have been isolated in some manner are strongly desired, as I'm hoping to isolate the plants I grow and try and get more of these plants out to the hot pepper community.

Hello and welcome to the Forum.

I saw your post on the THP forum a couple of days ago. I just had a chance to check my stock tonight.

When you say you're looking for Aleppo (also known as Halaby), would they also be categorized as Aleppo (PI181864)?

If so, send me an email via my profile.

Hi Ottawa,

Yep, those would be one of the Aleppo varieties that I'd be interested in. Email sent. Thanks!
