i find their statement: "Piment d’Espelette is France’s only native pepper, and it is so highly revered that it is protected by AOC status" to be misleading. There aren't really any peppers that are "native" outside the new world in that they didn't exist elsewhere until post-Columbus. now, it may well be a pepper specific to France from them creating a specialized hybrid, but that doesn't make it "native" to France. native to me means it came from a place naturally (i.e. not via people transporting it there).
