CARDI Moruga Red Pepper – Real Hottt!

26 April, 2017

The Caribbean heat is not just about the weather; it’s also about a particular hot pepper variety developed by the Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute (CARDI). The CARDI ‘Moruga Red’ is described by farmers as ‘a real good pepper’, ‘an all-rounder’, ‘fully-Caribbean’ and ‘good for the fresh local and export markets and local processed (mash) market’. The pepper also took centre-stage at an APP-organised training session for small-scale food processors in Antigua. See video highlights.
