Piment d'Espelette is a coarsely ground chili pepper from the French Basque Country. Here in the original affordable 250 grams packaging. Ezpeletako biperra is a unique chili pepper with a unique taste and a pleasant pungency.

The pepper is named after the place where it has been cultivated for centuries, and where an annual festival in honor of the chili pepper is held: Espelette, in the French-Basque Pyrenées-Atlantiques. The cultivation of chili peppers in this area dates back to the middle of the 17th century, when the chili pepper was introduced to Europe from South America.

From this is the Basque variety Capsicum annuum var. gorria, also called the Gorria or Biper. At the Ferme Conchoinea, Laurent and Laurence Bessouat have been cultivating this pepper  since 1998, planting and harvesting it by hand. The peppers are coarsely ground. De particles may be no more than 5 mm in size. The Bessouats maknow there is also a paste (purée) of and process it in various other products, of which we only sell de gelée . All Bressouats products are provided with their brand name, Segida.

Piment d'Espelette has been allowed to bear the designation appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) since 2000, and since 2002 it is also the only French spice to carry the European appellation d'origine protégée (AOP). Provided that it is grown under the supervision of the Syndicat du Piment d'Espelette. Every year, the cultivation is assessed by this Council on the basis of the quality criteria of the Basque and European label.

How good this allspice from Segida is, is evidenced by the many awards it has won, including the medal d'Argent at the Salon internationale d'agriculture in Paris in 2018.

Our Piment d'Espelette has been grown with care and love on the Ferme Conchoinea, a plot of approximately 4 hectares located in Aïnhoa in the French Basque Country. The harvest takes place in October/November, after which the peppers are processed immediately. We only offer these in the original packaging. Repacking is not allowed to repack Piment d'Espelette under the official name and under the AOP label. Beware of counterfeiting. Unfortunately it does happen!
