Wiri Wiri peppers are native to Guyana and resemble small, red cherries when ripe. They may be mistaken for cherry tomatoes, providing a pleasant surprise to the unsuspecting!
The earthy taste of Wiri Wiri peppers is unmistakable and even somewhat akin to tomatoes (with some extra heat of course). In Guyana, they are used to spice up stews, BBQ sauces, hot sauces, soups, and the country's famous Pepperpot dish. In many parts of the Caribbean and Brazil, you'll find hot sauces containing Wiri Wiri peppers as a popular condiment.
