Wiri Wiri Pepper - Whole


These small 1/2 inch, berry-shaped hot peppers are highly sought after for their exceptional heat, bright colour, and fresh flavour.

Related to the Habanero pepper, they have a rating of 60,000 to 80,000 Scoville Units.

Also known as Guyana Cherry, Hot Cherry, or Bird Cherry, they originate from South America’s northeastern coast. These little peppers pack a punch of heat, with a fruity, tomato-like tang, providing an unique flavour profile.

De-stemmed for ease of use, they are a favourite in hot salsas, stews, soups, and marinades. They also pair well with tropical fruits such as mango.

Wiri Wiri Peppers can be rehydrated in water or in any recipe with sufficient liquid.
