Details

Also known as Donne Sali, they are native to Guam. These little peppers really pack the heat and flavor! Their heat can be very intense at first and then evens out and lingers on your tongue and lips which can last for a while, also causing a little numbness. The heat can be amplified by crushing them using the back of a spoon. The peppers tend to bring out the sweetness in foods. They are mostly used fresh, but can also be used frozen in a paste. Guam holds a yearly festival to celebrate this pepper. Very Rare. Non-Isolated.
