Commercially introduced by us in the U.S.

Phonetically pronounced: ba-look

Balık is commonly grown in the Balkans and the villages of Northwest Turkey. Seeds for this specific strain of Balik were sent to us from our friend and heirloom gardener Gökhan Erdinç of Istanbul, Turkey. This strain systematically produced longer and skinnier fruits than those of our main seed stock of Balık in our field evaluations.

Bright green fruits of Balık turn bright red at full maturity. Delicious and crunchy flesh makes great stir fries and pickles. Prolific plants offer a mid-season harvest. “Balık” means fish in Turkish and the fruits somewhat resemble the silhouette of a fish.

Our current seed crop was grown in 2020 by seed grower Hank Keogh (OR).

Packet has 25 seeds
