Thank you for your patience during this time.


A Turkish heirloom that is hundreds of years old. They have a slight sweetness beneath their pungency and heat can range from mild to a very hot cayenne. Sivri Biber means "Hot Pepper" in Turkish. The original Sivri Aci Biber peppers were cross-pollinated with mystery peppers, and we got two offspring variations on several plants. The plants are extremely productive and produce a smooth tapered pepper and a fatter pepper as shown in the photos. We saved seeds from these because the plants were bountiful and the bright red beautiful peppers have a great flavor! Excellent for drying, pickling, and seasoning powder. You will receive a mixture of the two types in your seed pack. These pepper seeds have not been stabilized, so your grow results could vary from this description. These are considered an F2 generation and are great for experimentation or to stabilize yourself! Non-Isolated.
