Piquin pepper is a hot and small pepper, but they carry a lot of heat for their size is hotter that jalapeno peppers commonly used as a spice. Also known as tepin, or Bird pepper
The name Piquin is thought to come from the Spanish pequeño, meaning small. Its fruit is oblong and is found in the wild from the American Southwest to the Andes. It is grown both wild and commercially and is harvested in Mexico
Piquin peppers have a flavor that is somewhat citrusy with a touch of smokiness and they are quite hot. I popped one in my mouth today and they do pack a punch! The heat tends to be a front of the tongue hot, but I didn’t feel like the burn lasted all that long. Let’s just say I wasn’t searching for relief after eating this pepper.
