Kalugeritsa Pepper Seeds

A rare and flavorful pepper. This Jalapeño-level hot pepper hails from the village of Kalugeritsa in eastern North Macedonia and is a true hidden gem in the pepper world. The pepper is so rare that it bears the name of the village where it’s grown, as no variety name could be found.  Shout out to the Baker Seeds folks for collecting this rare treat out of Macedonia!

Flavor and Heat

The Kalugeritsa packs a full-bodied flavor that makes it one of the best peppers for roasting. Heat wise, at 3000+ SHU, it’s milder than a Habanero. Use it culinarily like a low heat sweet pepper or paprika.  If you’ve enjoyed the smokiness of the Rheza pepper, you’ll find the Kalugeritsa to be a delightful addition to your collection.

Culinary Uses

The Kalugeritsa is a versatile pepper that can be used in a variety of dishes. Its full-bodied flavor makes it ideal for roasting, but it’s also a great addition to salsas, stews, and grilled dishes.

Growing Tips and Characteristics

This pepper thrives in 8-12 hours of sun and sprouts in 7-10 days. It prefers temperatures between 70-95 degrees Fahrenheit and is not frost hardy1. The plant spacing should be between 14-18 inches.

So, if you’re looking to add a rare and flavorful pepper to your garden, the Kalugeritsa is a must-try. Its unique origins and robust flavor make it a standout choice for both gardening and cooking.
