Sweet, colourful and versatile. Add crunch to salads and stir fries, or use in pasta dishes, soups and omelettes. Many peppers are grown under heated glass out of season, at huge environmental cost. We think this is crazy, so when we can’t grow them ourselves, we truck naturally sun-ripened peppers over from our grower Paco in Spain.

Quick Overview

Sweet, colourful and versatile. Add crunch to salads and stir fries, or use in pasta dishes, soups and omelettes. Many peppers are grown under heated glass out of season, at huge environmental cost.

How to store peppers

Keep them in the fridge. They can last up to 2 weeks.

How to cook peppers

Add raw to salads or eat with dips (try some Riverford hummus). Roast them, use in pasta dishes, soups, chillies and omelettes. Recipes often call for roasted peppers, which gives them a smoky, concentrated flavour. Either cook them in the oven at 200℃ or over the flame of a gas hob, turning them until the skin is blackened and blistered. Place in a bowl, cover with clingfilm and leave for 15 mins – this makes it easier to peel the skins off.

Pepper season

The UK season spans the warmer summer months – July to September.
