What does this pepper taste like? What is distinctive about it. What does it look like? (reqimage template added above). RJFJR 17:46, August 3, 2005 (UTC)

Pepper Heat[edit]

4000 scoville heat units puts this pepper in the vicinity of a jalapeno pepper. While on the grand scheme of things, it's not that hot, I'd still say that it qualifies as a "hot pepper" — Preceding unsigned comment added by Darklupine (talkcontribs) 12:30, 13 February 2013 (UTC) The French version of this stub puts the Scoville heat rating at 4, and the Spanish one at 4.000 (the . indicating a thousand). The (English) Wiki article on Scoville includes the Espelette pepper at 3,500 to 10,000. Can someone figure out what is correct and then make sure the three language stubs are the same?CalgaryB 23:48, 26 October 2015 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bgillcalgary (talkcontribs)

Just from looking at Google search results it is pretty clear that the 4 is a 4 out of 10 ranking http://www.piment-espelette.info/english/peppers.html The 4000 comes from somewhere like this: http://pepperheadsforlife.com/the-scoville-scale/ and the other number from something like http://davesgarden.com/guides/articles/view/3474. Pepperheadsforlife and davesgarden are actually not that terrible of sources. The Chile Pepper Institute has this rather short and not very informative newsletter on the subject http://www.chilepepperinstitute.org/content/files/02%20winter.pdf that doesn't mention SHU, though they appear to sell the seeds. I have a harder time reading french, but I might get back to this and see what is in Spanish and french on the subject if no one else finds something better.

This part of France...[edit]

Is "this part of France" supposed to be understood to mean "Basque Country" (the part of France last mentioned), or is it a not-very-descriptive reference to the part of France from which the original (anonymous) editor is? Either way, I think a clearer wording would be better. Salmar 23:26, 14 May 2006 (UTC)

Is this a travelog, or an article about a plant?[edit]

The only thing mentioned about the plant is the heat range (and that is uncertain: I've heard reports considerably hotter). Even the species was hidden. What about size of plant or pod? Annual or perennial (especially as natively cultivated)? Flavor and aroma? Productivity?
