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.

This pepper is shaped like a 1" marble with a pointed end which biquinho is a Portuguese word that translates to little beak. The peppers dangle on sturdy, upright 2 ft. plants that are prolific with early harvests. Biquinho Yellow peppers mature from green to their warm yellow hue when it's time to harvest.

The rare pepper is crunchy, crisp, and juicy, and has Habanero-like flavors of tropical, citrus, fruity, and slightly smoky tones. 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.

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!

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.
