One of the six official Basque peppers of Spain.

 

(Also called Guernika or Gernika peppers)

 

While peppers are native to the Americas, they hold a special place in Basque cuisine. The plant, brought from the New World in the 16th century, quickly became essential, replacing black pepper as a key ingredient in the classic basque dish piperade.

 

Fruits are large and elongated, with tapering to a pointed end. Sweet flesh, has just a touch of heat. 

 

Traditionally used either fried lightly in oil, roasted when red in chorizo sausage and Biscaya Sauce or dried and ground into powder (paprika).

 

Sold in a 2.5" pot.

Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!

 

I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

Zero out of pocket expense.

91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.

Not every home qualifies, but if you are even slightly interested in learning if your home does, please click the link below which will redirect you to a new page and have the best salesman I have ever met give you a call. His name is James Johns and you have my word that he is ethical, honest and sincere.

Yes, I will get a referral bonus if you end up purchasing. But guess what? SO WILL YOU!

      ALL PLANTS ARE 100% ORGANIC - GUARANTEED!
