Another great Turkish variety from the city of Yalova in Turkey. Like most Turkish peppers it has a a lovely sweet flavour and is incredibly prolific if grown right. That said this one is very easy to grow and is one that won’t kill you with heat, allowing you to savor that great cayenne taste. Some have even gone as far as to say this is the best cayenne type pepper they have ever tasted.

What a little ripper of a producer the Yukari Bakan is. Its another great Turkish chilli variety that has an interesting nutty flavour with the typical stingy burn of the annuum types. Yukari means ‘Gift of God’ and Bakan means ‘overlooking’. It grows fairly compact with the fruit growing in unique little clusters. Pods dry well on plant without rotting if you get lazy like us with your picking. Pods grow upwards in bunches of 10-12 and ours turn from green to lilac and orange to finally a deep red. Plants are stunning when they get going and are a real stand out in the garden. We love to dry these for chilli flakes and powder.
