Biquinho Yellow Pepper Seeds

Size

Also known as “Little Beak Peppers,” “Sweaty Drops,” or “Little Kiss,” this unique little pepper from Brazil packs a lot of flavors! Like the Biquinho Red pepper, the Biquinho Yellow is quite popular in Brazil and Peru, and it is commonly called “Chupetinho” by the locals there. It is shaped like a marble with a pointed end which biquinho is a Portuguese word that translates to little beak. The peppers dangle on sturdy, upright plants that are prolific with early harvests.

The rare pepper is crunchy, crisp, and juicy, and has multiple flavors of tropical, citrus, fruity, and slightly smoky tones. The flavors are like Habaneros, but without the heat that you’d expect from Habaneros. So, if you’re looking for a delicious pepper that has the Habanero flavors but without the burning heat, the Yellow Biquinho pepper is the one for you! It has a heat level of 500 to 1,000 SHUs which is below the average heat of a Jalapeño. These are great to eat raw, cooked, make as salads, and to add to cheese plates and hors d’oeuvres!

You can also make a delicious appetizer by pickling them. In Brazil, Yellow Biquinho chiles are pickled in a mixture of vinegar, garlic, herbs, and a Brazilian liquor called Cachaca. The liquor adds sweetness to the sour brine, and once it is pickled, they are typically served as an appetizer or snack at bars and restaurants.

Fun Fact: In the United States, pickled Yellow Biquinho chiles are sold under the name “Sweaty Drops,” and high-end restaurants like Momofuku dangly in New York City are using the pickled pods as a substitute for olives in their martinis!

Yellow pepper seeds

Was not familiar with the red or yellow versions until I had a slightly pickled version of the reds at a restaurant and had to try the seeds. Got the yellow ones also. So far they all came up and are growing well.
