Organic Doux Des Landes Pepper
This paprika type pepper is indeed very sweet, with a rich and almost floral flavor. The skin of this French heirloom is somewhat thick, making it better for frying or paste than for fresh eating . The pendulous peppers are tapered and measure 5-6 inches long and 1 inch wide, with pleating at the stem end.
The bushy plants stand roughly 2 feet tall by 1.5 feet wide, and bear heavily. On our farm, Doux Des Landes was transplanted at the end of May and first harvested at the end of August.
