Tunisian Baklouti (Capsicum annuum)

This is the traditional cooking pepper from the North African country of Tunisia on the famed Barbary coast of Africa. Similar in size to most large New Mexico varieties but with lots more flavor and heat! Used in dishes with couscous and a traditional chile paste called Harisa that is used in North Africa and Arab countries as a condiment. Great for roasting, stuffing or making savory sauces. The Tunisian Baklouti chile plants can get over 3 feet tall and are very productive.

At Refining Fire Chiles we isolate our seed production plants to avoid cross-pollination with other chile species. If you want to try it yourself contact us for seeds, plants (March-August) and fresh chiles (September).

We also grow the Trinidad 7 Pot, Trinidad Scorpion, Naga Morich, Chocolate Habanero and many other Hot Chile Pepper plant varieties!
