We promise that when you grow these peppers and taste them, you’ll appreciate jumping on the Biquinho bandwagon! Known as little beak peppers or Biquinho Red Pepper, this little snacking pepper from Brazil packs a lot of flavors and you are going to want to keep eating them. The Biquinho pepper has coined the nickname, “little-beak” due to its shape as they appear to have beak-shaped tails. The Binquinho chile gained its popularity in Brazil and is slowly making its way up north towards the Americas. The Biquinho pepper plant is a sturdy, upright, and heavily branched 2’ plant.
These chilis have a tropical, fruity flavor like the Chinense peppers with some tart flavor and slight heat, which makes them easy to incorporate in many culinary uses. These little guys are mostly known for being pickled in vinegar and/or served as an appetizer. You can even try popping them in your mouth for a burst of exciting flavor! These beauties ripen from green to vibrant red. Get them while you can!

Fun Fact:They are called “Sweaty Drops” in gourmet stores when sold pickled, and locals call them “Chupetinho” where they are now marketed fresh and pickled throughout Brazil and Peru.
