This pepper comes from the Basque Country in Southwest France where there is a export control on the pepper itself. These seeds produce a mild heat but are full of the most unique flavor. Perfect for drying and using as a flake/powder. The pods are large and the plant has a thick stock.

"The French government allows only a small amount of Piment d’Espelette to be exported, which increases the rarity and price of these chiles elsewhere in the world.

Flavour-wise, Piment d’Espelette are wonderfully complex, with a rich, slightly toasty flavor and moderate heat. They are too expensive for everyday use, but for special occasions and dishes, they can’t be beat. " Source: Silk Road Spices

Seeds: 10+

Heat: Moderate

Notes: Intense flavor, hard to source, I can confirm after trying the spices from SilkRoad and Elora Mercantile both who claim to have made them from the peppers originating in Basque ours hold the same profile. Gorria Pepper is another name this strain goes by.
