A rare heirloom from Northern Spain, it is a tangy red pepper that provides a smoky, sweet flavor and lightly simmering heat. The Piquillo is nicknamed "little beak" in Spanish, but don't let the nickname fool you! Growing to 2 1/2 inches long, there are several ways to incorporate Piquillo Peppers. You can fry, roast, or leave it raw, but roasted Piquillo peppers offer sweetness and flavor to many meals. The peppers have a type of firmness that is perfect for stuffing them into your meals because they have that nice crunch. Harvest the Piquillo pepper when it is red.

One of my favorite peppers

I did get the seeds and they appear to be ready to get to work for me, next Feb when I start them in the house I have no doubt they will be stellar and the first thing I will do with the first peppers that come off the plant will be to put them in a dip that is my fav because of the great flavor of this particular pepper. I am so happy you carry them. I hope you will get more of the purple marconi seeds in stock before next Feb as well. And thank you for your 'how to' videos starting pepper seeds.

Patience germinating

I'd just like to re-iterate the patience required to get these things to germinate. Took me 17 days (on a heat pad set to 80-85) before I got my first Piquillo sprout. I thought scotch bonnets took a long time - those popped in ten days. Worth the wait, though - I'm really looking forward to harvest and roasting.

Pepper seeds arrived quickly.

Pepper seeds arrived quickly. As soon as the snow melts, I'll get them started. I'm really excited to find this variety. I buy them pickled in the stores, but want to pickel my own.

delicious little beaks!

when roasted over the gas flame of my stove, they peal easier than any pepper I have ever roasted. maybe due to the waxy finish to the skin
