Rare annum from Syria. "Malih" stands for salty and "Helow" stands for sweet in the Arabic language. When fully ripe, the bright red pods have strange very salty-acidic, sweet, yet spicy hot flavor. What is really unique about it is that this complex flavor becomes more intense after the pods are picked and sat for a while. The ripen pods can store for longer period of time without going bad. Instead, the taste becomes stronger and more favored. The levels of sweetness, salt and acidity increase while the heat levels are remain the same. The pepper has no bitterness whatsoever, this means you can enjoy it at any stage, but we highly recommend you try them when fully rip, or even better, let them set on the kitchen’s counter for about 2 days then taste and enjoy the unique sweet-salty-acidic-hot flavor.
