Peppadew pepper

Peppadew™ peppers (sometimes called piquanté peppers) are a uniquely South African pepper, much like African Cherry Peppers but not quite the same. It is interesting that peppadews (piquant peppers) are rarely eaten raw as it does not have much taste in its raw state. It is invariably commercially available as a pickle, which brings out its unique and piquant taste. If it is bought in a bottle, the pleasantly sweet-sour pickling liquid which takes on the flavour of the peppadews, can be used as a salad dressing or in cooking.

Plural: Peppadew peppers
