Product Description

Peppadew Sweet Peppers are the perfect combination of sweet and heat. Great for garnishing salads, used a pizza toppers or as a tappas mix for a table of savoury treats.

“Peppadew” is the brand name of piquanté peppers. Grown in the Limpopo province of South Africa, the main differentiator is that they have been pickled and sweetened. As the story goes, a farmer discovered the tiny pepper in South Africa in the 1990s and put it on the market. He described it as “peppery” but “sweet as the dew,” hence the name. It became very popular in South Africa in the 2000s, especially as a pizza topping or on salticrax with some cream cheese and a top of peppadew!

Wondering just how hot these peppers are? Well, they’re not that crazy hot. The Peppadew measures in at 1,177 Scoville Heat Units on the Scoville Scale. This is roughly equal to the heat of the poblano pepper or a sweet apple pepper (whereas the jalapeno pepper averages about 5,000). Peppadew Sweet Peppers are not overwhelmingly hot, just a nice sweet South African heat to add to your dish. Use as a garnish or an addition to the side.
