I'd be interested if they are isolated. I could also trade some hots, super hots, milds and mediums.

I would really like to try them. Are they as good as they sound?

Yes they are as good as advertised. OK, I am a little biased since I am Turkish, but they are among the best peppers out there. Not hot at all, but very flavorful.

I voted yes as well. I think it sounds like a neat way to learn more about another culture.

I'd also love to try them. I thought I had seeds but they turned out to be Aleppo not Urfa, I was disappointed and would like to keep trying for next season. I have many pepper varieties for a trade if you'd like, just p.m. me, thanks.

OK TV folks... I will be able to start sending the seeds in two weeks, peepers have just matured and turned red. Send me a PM for SASE address. I will send a PM to the folks posted a reply.

The color (deep deep purple), taste, and aroma of Urfa crushed peppers are quite different. Aleppo and Maraş are closer to each other IMHO. They are all great, I like Urfa with red meat, in particular with Adana Kebab. Maraş and Aleppo with eggs, poultry, soups.
