Little Beak Pepper

Little Beak Pepper - Piquillo Seeds from Spain
Looking for the Little Beak Pepper

The rare Spanish Piquillo pepper is also known as the  Little Beak Pepper and it is usually seen coming out of a jar. This super tasty sweet pepper with modest heat – nearly imperceptible – has both smoky and tart undertones.

You can't find this pepper easily because it received a European PDO (Protected Denomination of Origin) and cannot be commercially grown outside its Navarra, Spain region. But don't worry, you can grow this world-famous Little Beak Pepper in your home garden! That's right, Sandia Seed offers Little Beak Pepper garden seeds for you to grow them in your garden.

The smoky-sweet flavor of marinated Piquillo is out of this world!
