The Piquillo de Lodosa is a chili pepper from Navarre, Spain, specifically from Lodosa. It is an official Basque chili pepper. 

The flavor profile is sweet with a very mild heat. The locals roast them then store them in oil, or they pickle them. This pepper is ideal for many applications, from stuffing to roasting, frying, working into sauces, soups and more.

The peppers ripen from green to red and are about 2 inches in diameter. They narrow to a point at end of pendant pods. The Piquillo de Lodosa chili plants grow up to 3 feet tall.
