For me, the best evenings start with a tapas of these delicious, if unpredictable peppers
- Guy Singh-Watson, Riverford founder

How to prepare

Grab a hot pan, a splash of oil and fry the peppers whole until deeply blistered. Sprinkle with sea salt for a fine snack. Keep a cool beer close at hand to soothe the sting of the wickedly hot ones.


Delivered from our farm, so wash before cooking. Store in the bottom of the fridge.


Our peppers are sold as class 2. This means that they might not look cosmetically perfect, but they are grown for the very best flavour. (We have to tell you this to satisfy some EU rules).
