Long, tapering organic red romano peppers. Although they look like a giant chilli, they taste more like sweet, full-flavoured bell peppers.
Local isn’t always best! Peppers’ homegrown season falls in late summer, though they’re a customer favourite year-round. When our own pepper season is over, we truck over naturally sun-ripened ones from our friend Paco in Spain. This uses just a fraction of the carbon compared with growing them in the UK using heat.
