The Pimento Pepper is an outstanding pepper that has more uses than just replacing the pit in an olive or providing the colorful bits in that Southern cheese dip. Did you know that it grows to 3"-4" and is heart-shaped? Or that when it’s not drenched in brine, it’s juicy, sweet, and mild with just a hint of heat? Or that dried sweet paprika spice is made from it? For best flavor, wait for the fruit to ripen from green to deep red, then use it in your favorite recipes to make them stand out.
