Piquante aka Juanita peppers from South Africa have a flirty and sweet first bite followed by a little bit of heat. They’re delicious, crunchy and perfect for snacking when you’re craving a bit of spice. Serve them on crackers, or stuffed with mozzarella, feta, or goat cheese.
“Peppadew” is the brand name of piquanté peppers grown in the Limpopo province of South Africa that 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.
