Hot peppers


The hot peppers are cultivated in open field between the end of May and the beginning of June. The picking, between August and October, requires more steps because of the peculiarities of this plant.



The hot pepper gives taste and strength to every dish. Who loves piquant uses it on pasta or pizza. Even the oil becomes hot and it can be used as dressing. The hot pepper is one of the most important greens in our land: if it happen to find yourselves in the city of Ruffano in late September, don’t lose the occasion to visit the feast “te lu maru” (of the hot taste).

All our products are farmed with the integrated production technique on open field. Our hand picking allows us to make a first selection on site; and immediately after, the vegetables are transported to the facility to be processed. The processing is carried out strictly according to the tradition of Salento, then the vegetables are dried in the sun and salted by hand. Finally, the packaging is carried out by hand, and following step by step our typical recipes without any preservatives.
