What Are Peppadews

To taste a fresh piquanté pepper, you’d have to fly to South Africa, where Peppadew International grows and markets them. Other than the designated farmers who produce them in South Africa, their sought-after seeds are unavailable to cultivators. After an apparent fortuitous discovery of pepper with exceptional attributes—possibly a chance hybrid—this small Capsicum cultivar was developed in the northern province of Limpopo. The seed was given a name, a trademark, and a patent.

Peppadew is the brand name for sweet piquanté peppers pickled and bottled by Peppadew International Ltd. in South Africa.
