These whole artichokes are in category of their own. Hand picked, prepared according to traditional methods, and packed in only water and salt, their flavor and texture will amaze you. They will literally melt in your mouth!
In casseroles, on pizza or paella, in salads – these are without a doubt the best artichokes on the market. Navarra is known for big ripe juicy vegetables. It is also the home of the running of the bulls and the San Fermin festival in which the Cabazones – or big heads – are worn throughout the streets. Our Matiz Navarro artichokes displays one of these well known symbols of Navarra.

As with many of the regions of Spain, precious farmland is under pressure from development as well as industrial agri-business. Supporting small farmers and a diversity of local traditional produce is crucial to this region. Conservas Pedro Luis, the producer of the Matiz organic Piquillo peppers and denomination of origin artichokes, is a small family-owned company which processes a wide variety of regional vegetables and works exclusively with the same local farmers year after year to support local agriculture and to guarantee the quality of the product and the Denomination of Origin or Organic status.
The peppers are processed using the traditional Navarran methods. They are roasted over an open flame and then hand peeled with no water used which would remove the flavor and juices. They are then hand-jarred in their own juices to retain the flavor, consistency, and natural sugars of the pepper. There are no chemicals used in the production process, and all organic waste material is returned to the farmers to be used as natural fertilizers and for animal feed.
