Known as Sweety Peppers, these small, Peruvian tear-shaped peppers originated in the Peruvian Amazon, where it was brought back to the Gandules Inc. headquarters in Peru. Here, the growing and cultivation process was perfected over a period of two years. Also known as Incan Red Drops, Sweety Drops have a sugar-like sweetness and work well in salads, pizza or pastas, or even in baked goods. This is a unique type of pepper that grows in the Highlands of Peru. Its exceptional taste is both sweet and sour. The pepper seed is a combination of a cherry pepper and jalapeno pepper.
Cannellini beans (Phaseolus vulgaris) are relatives of the kidney bean; in fact, they are sometimes called white kidney beans because they look like just that. They are also called fazolia beans and are popular in Italian cuisine. They are about a half inch long, kidney shaped, and have a tough skin. Their flavor is mildly nutty and their texture is smooth and creamy when cooked. This bean was originally cultivated in Argentina by Italian immigrants and later taken to Italy where they are now grown commercially.
This new and versatile pepper is a colorful, unique topping for salads, pizzas and pastas. Originating in the Amazon rainforest, its sweet flavor and crunchy bite is ideal to toss with vegetables to create a flavorful dish. Peruvian Sweety Drops are available in retail and food service.
