Organic Basque Pepper Seeds
Organic Basque Pepper
250 mg packet ~30-45 heirloom pepper seeds.
We found this pepper at a farmer's market in Boise, Idaho, which has a large Basque population, and loved it so much we had to start growing the seed. This is a long, waxy, frying type pepper with a moderately thick wall and sweet flavor. Great for grilling, roasting or eating fresh. The fruits may be red or yellow orange, and measure 7-8 inches long and 1.5-2 inches wide. We have begun to select for orange color in this line, as it is the sweetest.
This productive pepper was a farm favorite this year. The plants are vigorous and stand 12-18" tall. We transplanted the seedlings into the field in mid June and harvested the first peppers in early October.
