Cherry Peppers 101
Cherry Peppers are large, red and green, pumpkin-shaped chili peppers. While other varieties of cherry peppers are hot, cherry peppers are characterized by their mild, sweet and aromatic flesh.
Commonly found in salad bars, our peppers make a popular antipasto pepper. On the East Coast, you’ll often see them stuffed with provolone and prosciutto and enjoyed as an appetizer.
Our Cherry Peppers are locally grown and always delivered to our Napa Valley Facility and packed within twenty-four hours of harvesting. Family-owned and operated for more than 75 years, Mezzetta has been cultivating relationships with local family farms since 1935. As a result, we enjoy the luxury of selecting the very best produce from each and every harvest. Jeff Mezzetta and our production manager inspect each crop looking for uniformity, vibrant color and perfect texture so that only the highest quality peppers end up in our products.
