Description: When the growers at Fruition met the glossy gems of Biquinho (bee-KEE-nyo) pepper, they were instantly over the moon! So fun, so abundant and just *so* delicious, Biquinho resists the binary of ‘hot’ pepper vs ‘sweet,’ bringing a wave of floral, tropical fruit flavours with a touch of something that’s not quite spice and certainly delectable. Though kissing cousins of the hottest peppers on the planet, Biquinho barely registers on the Scoville Scale, making each bite a delightful immersion into citrusy-sweetness with depth well beyond the bell pepper. Though mostly a sweet pepper, a tinge of heat arrives with the sweetness, dissipating as quickly as it arrives. Beloved in their native Brazil and Peru, Biquinho translates to ‘Little Beak’ where they are savoured both fresh as well as pickled.
