Balik (Erdinc Strain) hot pepper

Balik is a Turkish heirloom pepper. Seeds for this specific strain of Balik were sent to us from our friend and heirloom gardener Gokhan Erdinc of Istanbul, Turkey. We realized that this strain systematically produced longer and skinnier fruits than those of our main seed stock of Balik so we introduced the seeds which Gokhan sent, as a separate strain.

Bright green color turns bright red at full ripeness. Delicious and crunchy fruits make great stir fries and pickles. Productive plants offer a mid-season harvest. "Balik" means fish in Turkish and the fruits somewhat resemble the silhouette of a fish.
