One of six of the official Basque peppers of Spain.

 

Named after the area from which it hails, Espelette is a commune in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department in south-western France. It lies in the traditional Basque province of Labourd.

 

Also known as Piment d’Espelette, under AOC ( "controlled designation of origin" - a French certification which shows that a product came from a specific area and was made in a certain manner) .

 

Pods average between 3 - 6 inches long, are thick walled with a conical shape and a blunt pointed tip. Smooth skinned pods ripen from green to red vermilion at maturity. Super productive plants.

 

Traditionally, pods are dried and ground into a powder, often replacing black pepper, due to the delicious subtle heat which is both slightly smoky and slightly citrusy. Excellent for roasting and stuffing also.

 

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!
