The 2019 Spicy Piment d’Ville is the chile that will give you more heat than pepper flavor. Its much spicer than our regular Piment d’Ville, but the coolest thing is that its still the same pepper, just processed a little bit different.
To make the Spicy PDV, the first chiles to ripen off the plants are harvested and put directly into the dehydrator. They aren’t given the same “curing” time in the greenhouse that our chiles for regular PDV get, meaning that instead of taking some time to relax and turn a little sweeter, they take all their heat right into the dehydrator with them. And thus, the Spicy Piment d’Ville.
The Scoville Rating for Piment d’Ville is at 15,000-16,000 units, making it hotter than a jalapeño, but milder than a cayenne.
As always, our 1.2 oz jars are harvest dated so you know how fresh our product is. We recommend keeping the product out of direct sunlight and away from the heat of the oven in order for it to retain its bright red color and flavor.
