Urfa Biber Pepper

Urfa Biber (also known as isot pepper) is a dried Kurdish chili pepper of the type Capsicum Annuum cultivated in the Kurdish majority Urfa region of Turkey traditionally used in meat and savory dishes. It is often described as having a smoky, raisin-like taste.
Urfa Biber is technically a red pepper, ripening to a dark maroon on the plant.
The peppers go through a two-part process, where they are sun-dried during the day and wrapped tightly at night.  Urfa Biber is less spicy than many other chili peppers but provides a more lasting build of heat.

The heat rating of the Urfa Biber is 30,000–50,000 SHU on the Scoville scale.
