Nothing says summer in the Midwest like tall corn fields, Cubs baseball games, and delicious pickled sport peppers on top of a classic Chicago-dog. But, let’s be honest – no matter where you are or which team you’re rooting for, these sport pepper seeds are a must.
The Sports Pepper is a medium-hot, slender, pointed fruit that is a slightly larger version of a Tabasco Pepper. Plants are super sturdy, produce in abundance, and turn from green to red when mature. Sports Peppers are often pickled and once pickled – well, it seems the ways to use it are pretty much infinite. Think sandwiches, Italian beef roast, pizza, and hot dogs, of course.
Fun Fact: The sporty name of this pepper is in honor of its most popular use as a pickled topping for Chicago hot dogs at the ballpark!
