Doux D'Espagne or Spanish Mammoth Pepper

         
 
19 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
This variety was introduced before 1860. In the 1880s, this pepper was shipped to the large markets in Paris from warmer areas like Algeria and Valencia. In the 19th century the 6-7-inch long fruit was among the largest offered, and popular with cooks. It produces long, cone-shaped peppers that are perfect for frying and salads. They are sweet and flavorful, but hardly ever offered in America. A good-producing pepper that is reported to be disease resistant.

Review:

This pepper will be in my garden every year from now on. I planted 5 plants and have picked close to a hundred peppers from them. They have made consistently in 95 heat when my other peppers were struggling. I did have them planted where they received some shade in the afternoon but so are my bell peppers and they are just starting to produce this past week. The flavor is amazing; sweet not hot. I've been eating a lot of them raw along with Cubanelle Peppers which I also love.

What are the pros? Nothing

What are the cons? Size, flavor, shape

Review:

These peppers do not look or taste anything like the description. They are small, thin walled, and resemble an elephant trunk on the end. And they are hot, not sweet. They quickly ripen to red. Very disappointing. I will not be growing these again.

What are the pros? Exceptional Taste

What are the cons? Only 1 or 2 per plant

Review:

In spite of the fact that these were not very prolific, I will definitely grow these every year because their taste was worth it. Delicious slightly spicy but sweet. Takes a long time to ripen, but wow. Worth the wait.

What are the pros? Thick enough to roast red ones

What are the cons? requires patience to turn red.

Review:

I have grown these for years in my zone 7 garden. They really like the heat and take a long summer to turn red just in time for me to roast and freeze for winter use. They are my staple and I love them. No matter how good my crop which varies from summer to summer I never have and left by spring. The hardest part for me is to leave the green ones on long enough to turn red, so I plant a different variety for green usages.
