Capsicum Baccatum

The Peppadew is grown in the Limpopo province of South Africa, and is actually the brand name of sweet piquanté peppers. As the story goes, a farmer discovered the tiny pepper in South Africa in the 1990s and put it on the market. He described it as “peppery” but “sweet as the dew,” hence the name. It became very popular in South Africa in the 2000s, especially as a pizza topping.

The Peppadew is a sweet pepper, with just a bit of heat. It resembles a cherry tomato, but it has no relation. It is sold commercially, either hot or mild, and may be stuffed with soft cheeses, such as cream cheese. It is also tasty on salads, omelettes, and sandwiches.


  1. I am looking for the name of and seeds of a cherry size red sweet pepper that Private put on Pizzas made in Germany. Any help would be welcome. thanks.
