When you pick from TRAPPEY'S® line of pickled products, you're selecting a brand with over 100 years of experience. TRAPPEY'S is the pickled pepper expert! Our unique cold-packed process ensures the freshness of peppers and the color-coded lids and labels make it easy for you to choose your favorite hot or mild pepper!

Did you know that peppers, both hot and mild, contain an ingredient that can actually make you feel better? It's called capsaicin, and it's a natural stimulant that causes the release of endorphins. (Endorphins are the body's natural painkiller, and can create a sense of well-being, increase the heart rate and speed up metabolism.) It's no wonder that peppers can actually be habit-forming!

The degree of heat of the pepper is measured in Scoville Units (S.U.) which is simply a measure of the capsaicin concentration. Pure capsaicin equals 15 million S.U. The color and shape of the pepper are significant tothe S.U. level...the redder the pepper, the riper and therefore milder and fruitier it is. And peppers with wider "shoulders" tend to be milder.




Banana - These shiny, yellow peppers are available in TRAPPEY'S Whole Mild peppers or sliced hot rings. Petite banana peppers have no capsaicin, therefore no head. Larger banana peppers, from which the hot rings are made have a Scoville rating of 1,500-6,000. Both peppers are best used in salads and sandwiches.

Cayenne - This is an elongated and sharply pointed bright red pepper with a taste that is tart and smoky with a hint of tomato. Different varieties product different heat levels which may very greatly from the milder ones at 3,500 S.U. to the hotter ones at 50,000 S.U. The cayenne pepper is a staple in southern cooking and is used in several TRAPPEY'S pepper sauces.

Cherry - Named after its shape, this pepper is available in both mild and hot products. Cherry peppers are dark green to red in color and heat levels vary from no heat to 3,500 S.U. This pepper is mot commonly used as a garnish for tuna, chicken or garden salads and, as an ingredient in salsa.

Cocktail Okra - The pod of the okra is a tapering green fruit of two to four inches long. The fresh fruit is a staple in many Creole dishes like gumbo, and when okra is pickled it is often eaten right from the jar. As a garnish for tomato juice or a Bloody Mary, the okra gives drinks a tangy twist. While not a member of the pepper family, TRAPPEY'S cocktail okra varies from 0 S.U. for mild to 100 S.U. for hot.

Jalapeño - Most popular and recognizable of all peppers, the jalapeño has a Scovill rating of 900 - 5,000. With its tangy and slightly sour tast, it is used most commonly on nachos, in salsa, stews, breads, sauces and dips, and chopped to mix with ground beef. The green jalapeño is available in whole and sliced in the TRAPPEY'S pickled pepper line and is used in CHEF MAGIC JALAPEÑO pepper sauce. The red jalapeñ0 is used in TRAPPEY'S pepper sauces because of its mature sweet taste.

Pepperoncini - This wrinkled, tapered and curved pepper is essential to salads and available in two varieties. The yellowish hotter Greek import named TRAPPEY'S TEMPERO® has a Scoville rating of 100-500. The milder, green mainstay of Italian and antipasto salads, the TRAPPEY'S DULCITO®, has no Scoville rating.

Santa Fe Grande - This tapered, bluntly pointed yellow pepper is included under the TORRIDO® label of the TRAPPEY'S line of peppers. The Santa Fe Grande is a cross between the Floral Gem and the Hungarian Yellow Wax Hot Pepper. It is a good substitute for jalapeños in salads, cooked meats or sprinkled on tacos and enchiladas. This pepper has a Scoville rating of 2,500 - 5,000.


Serrano - The serranos are long, slightly curved, bright green peppers with crisp biting heat. One of the most popular peppers, it has a flavor that is highly acidic, and somewhat sweet and citrusy. Its popularity has risen because it is mor flavorful than the jalapeño. With it's Scoville rating of 10,000 to 23,000, the serrano is a common Mexican cure for stomach ailments. TRAPPEY'S SERANO® brand is commonly eaten as a snack or hors d'oeuvre or as an ingredient in meat, poultry, seafood and egg dishes.


Tabasco - These small, bright yellow-green or red peppers have a sharp biting heat of 25,000 - 50,000 S.U. with hints of celery and green onion flavors. The tabasco peppers are used in two forms in the TRAPPEY'S line. In the pickled pepper state, the green tabasco PEPPERS IN VINEGAR, as well as the juice, are used to spice up almost every meal.
