Caribbean hot peppers
CARDI has developed a number of hot pepper cultivars for farmers of the region. These varieties are generally very pungent and aromatic. The fresh product command premium prices on the international (US, Canada, Europe) market while Caribbean processors also clamour for it to manufacture hot sauces. The picture shows some of these varieties on display by CARDI Barbados at the recent AgroFest 2006 held at the Queen's Park, Bridgetown, Barbados from Feb. 24th - 26th.
